Did you know that Frankincense was traded in Europe around 2000 BCE and was valued higher than gold?
However, this treasured Frankincense oil fell out of popularity in Europe with the rise of Christianity and fall of the Roman Empire, obliterating the thriving trade routes that had developed over many centuries. There was a time in history when Christianity forbidden the use of incense due to the associations with the pagan worship.
Presently, Frankincense was re-invented due to the demand of individuals looking for healthy lifestyles, and now is used extensively in cosmetics, and as a celebratory scent by certain denominations in specific religious ceremonies.
Frankincense (Boswelia carterii, fereana, and sacra) is a highly prized essential oil obtained from the resin of a small tree. This tree, the Boswelia, is native to North Africa and the Middle East. It has been used for thousands of years for spiritual purposes.
The healthy lifestyle benefits of Frankincense originated from ancient religious ceremonies, slowing down the body and mind preparing for prayer and meditation sessions.
Frankincense’s scent will help you naturally calm down, improve your emotional balance, resistance to stress and tension, and may also help to improve one’s attitude with its intriguing combination of sweet, musky and earthy smells all in one.
