In the West, frankincense and myrrh have been used as incense in religious and cultural ceremonies since ancient times; in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, they are used mainly for the treatment of chronic diseases. The main chemical constituents of frankincense and myrrh are terpenoids and essential oils.
FRANKINCENSE is an oleoresin from Boswellia carterii and Boswellia thurifera trees, originating from the Middle East and Somalia. The aroma is spicy and lemony, thought to elevate the mind and expand spiritual consciousness, perfect for meditation.
Always revered as a mystical resin, frankincense is known to purify and cleanse not only energy, but has been traditionally used as an antiseptic disinfectant for wounds and the respiratory system. It is known to help open airways, reduce blood pressure, reduce stress and anxiety, and promote tranquility.
MYRRH is the oleoresin of the Commiphora myrrha shrub, known to be used as incense for more than 3500 years, and was the basis of many early perfumes. The aroma is spicy and delicate, with a balsamic undertone, and is considered to be profoundly calming and restorative.
Myrrh is great for anti-bacterial, respiratory health, skin and oral health, for pain and swelling, and as an antioxidant. It is traditionally used when one encounters a cold or cough. Myrrh lifts one's spirit, grounds the being, and allows for further spiritual awakening.
