This oil was a highly valued substance in the ancient world. It
was reserved for use only by royalty and priests because it was
capable of lifting the consciousness to higher, more refined perception.
To this day, frankincense is still used in temple rituals. Frankincense
has many therapeutic benefits. It slows down and deepens the breath,
and helps one to center. It should be considered in pulmonary and
asthmatic conditions. Frankincense also provides an intriguing note
in many therapeutic blends for skin healing and for general fragrance
purposes. A most sacred essence!
