Frankincense is a wonderful meditation tool that can help if you are having difficulty keeping the rampant mind at bay. Using Frankincense deepens your meditative practice and helps you to keep focused.

Frankincense is an ancient tree resin that has been used for centuries in sacred ceremonies, religious rituals, spiritual meditation and holistic medicine. It was in widespread use by the Egyptians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Greeks and Romans. 

Frankincense resin comes from the Boswellia tree which grows in mainly Africa. To collect the sap, the tree bark is cut and the sap is allowed to ooze out of the bark. The sap dries on the tree and is then collected. 

As incense, the raw chunks of resin are directly set on a heat source, such as hot coals. Burning Frankincense is believed to affect the crown charka. It helps with meditation by deepening the breath and brining the body and mind into a harmonious state. There is a quality to the scent of burning Frankincense that seems to reach a forgotten corner of the mind. It is an exotic, yet familiar smell that can assist in promoting spiritual focus and creativity. 

As a medicinal substance Frankincense was thought to cure vomiting, diarrhea, fever, and tumors. It is also used to treat skin inflammation, headaches and allergies. In China it is used to treat leprosy and gonorrhea. Frankincense is edible and can also help with digestion. Ayurvedic medicine uses Frankincense for treating arthritis.

Edible Frankincense must be pure for internal consumption. It should be translucent without any impurities. It is often chewed like gum, but it is stickier because it is a resin.

Frankincense has also been used in Aromatherapy to relieve anxiety and promote a sense of well-being. It is used to alleviate depression. 

Personally, it feels as if burning Frankincense during your day helps to encourage sacredness in your life. Give it a try
