This ancient oil has been revered for centuries due to its spiritual and therapeutic properties. Let's explore the fascinating history and uses of this sacred oil!

A Brief History of Frankincense

Frankincense, also known as Boswellia sacra or Boswellia carterii, is derived from the resin of the Frankincense tree. This tree grows in the arid regions of the Middle East, Africa, and India. Frankincense has been used for over 5,000 years, with records dating back to ancient Egypt, where it was used in religious ceremonies and for embalming the dead.

It also plays a significant role in various religious traditions, including Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. In Christianity, Frankincense was one of the gifts presented to the baby Jesus by the three wise men, symbolizing his divine nature.

  2. Promote spiritual growth: Many people believe that Frankincense helps to open the "third eye" and deepen spiritual connections.
