There are a few frankincense uses that we recommend. In addition to using sacred frankincense resin for cleansing a space or crystal, it is also a great scent for yoga and meditation. Lighting frankincense resin before yoga or meditation helps clear the sinuses and activates the energy in the body. Frankincense benefits the crown chakra, so lighting this sacred frankincense will help open your mind for meditation.
You can also enhance the energy of your sacred altar by burning frankincense resin. It acts as an offering to whatever guardian angels or divine beings you'd like to invite into your space. It ensures that protective and loving guides surround you. The frankincense benefits provide a stable and loving environment.
Begin by lighting the charcoal round on a fireproof surface. When the charcoal begins to turn white, drop a couple of pieces of frankincense resin onto the charcoal. Then charcoal will continue to burn the resin until it's all gone!
Medicinally, frankincense stimulates the airways, helping to relieve asthma, bronchitis, colds and flus. It also believed to help alleviate anxiety and depression. You can also chew frankincense resin for oral health. You can chew it the same way you'd chew gum and then pack it against a troubled area to help regenerate the tissues (note: the taste and texture is a little unpleasant). These frankincense uses have been practiced for hundreds of years.
Frankincense grows on the Somali coast and the Arabian Peninsula. Harvesters have to make a deep cut into the trunk of a tree and remove a piece of bark to allow the sap to drip out. It usually takes about three months for the sap to harden into the resin that we use. A tribe in Somaliland gathers this frankincense resin.
We recommend that you use Charcoal disks when burning your Frankincense resin. Place your charcoal in a safe dish or abalone shell--you can also fill a bowl with rice or use an incense burner if you have one. Using a lighter or match, light the charcoal until you can see flickering ambers all over it. Then, place a couple pieces of resin atop the charcoal disk. If it does not start smoking, gently light the Frankincense resin a little until it starts to burn.
