We are including below some additional information for people who would like to know more about this ancient material and its benefits:
The English word frankincense derives from the old French expression franc encens, meaning "high-quality incense". The word franc in Old French meant "noble" or "pure". Frankincense is tapped from the scraggly but hardy trees by striping (slashing the bark) and letting the exuded resin bleed out and harden. The hardened streaks of resin are called tears. Boswellia Sacra trees are considered unusual for their ability to grow in environments so unforgiving that they sometimes grow out of solid rock.
Also known as liquid gold, Frankincense assists in removing negative energy from a space, and creating an elevated spiritual awareness. It is often used to lift moods, to ease anxiety and stress, and for purification. Modern science is discovering some astonishing facts about the use of Frankincense specially its benefit in Asthma and other medical conditions. Use Google search on Frankincense to do your own research.
Religious leaders have contended for millennia that burning incense is good for the soul. Now, biologists have learned that it is good for our brains too. An international team of scientists, including researchers from Johns Hopkins University and the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, describe how burning frankincense (resin from the Boswellia plant) activates poorly understood ion channels in the brain to alleviate anxiety or depression. This suggests that an entirely new class of depression and anxiety drugs might be right under our noses. Source: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/05/080520110415.htm
We strongly suggest our customers to avoid untrustworthy incense that are widely available everywhere, they will hurt you instead of giving any benefit.
