Frankincense (Boswellia carteri) Aromatherapy

                 Frankincense is considered holy by almost all religions, and various shamanic paths. Yes, the same stuff from the popular historic story from the bible of the "Three Wise Men" who brought baby Jesus gifts of Frankincense and Myrrh. What is it? It's a sap collected from the tree scientifically known as Boswellia Carteri. This resin is harvested with full respect to future generations. It has a pine-like aroma. It's calming to the mind and clears the cerebral-circulation. Historically it has been viewed as a symbol of divination and purity while believed to repel evil spirits as a talisman. It's been a gift to many kings and queens.



Use In Meditation


                  The burning smoke is adored for its pleasant aroma, and meditation work. I've read a few recent studies that suggest that it's even DNA protective. wow! Now, back on the subject of meditation.. Meditation is a natural means to reduce stress while allowing the mind to become rejuvinated, thus also rejuvinating your body and vital force(chi). Meditation expands consciousness and is a gateway to opening your third eye.


The "Third eye" is a slang term for what's actually known as the Pineal gland. The pineal gland Produces a natural chemical that induces our dreams, often refered to as the "spirit molecule". It's thought to be the "seat of the soul". Burning the resin during meditation can assist you in your journey to higher states of consciousness. If you are interested in expanding and opening your third eye, consider meditation and refrain from the consumption of fluoride and other harmful checmicals.


How do I burn it?


                 If you are planning on burning it indoors you'll need an electric burner. Swift Lite Charcoal Tablets are also useful but only for outdoor use. If you want to burn it outdoors then it can be done Very easily.. Just light it, making sure to hold the lighter there for a few seconds until it catches. Once its lit, it will start pillowing off smoke into the air. This smoke is not the desired smoke. Let the incense burn for around a minute and then blow it out. You'll notice a change in the color and fragrance of the smoke. Using an electric incense burner or Swift Lite Charcoal Tablets. will allow you to get the most desired smoke possible out of the resin. Enjoy!


Medical Research


                 On a final note there has been much research conducted on the chemicals found inside this plant and its resins, and oils. They contain phytochemicals known as: acid resin (56 per cent), soluble in alcohol, gum (similar to gum arabic) 3036%, alpha-boswellic acid (Boswellia sacra),4-O-methyl-glucuronic acid (Boswellia sacra),incensole acetate, and phellandrene. Even the smoke can purify the air from harmful microbes. Shamanic cultures picked up on this many eras ago, and were able to understand its holistic potential for healing and inducing deep states during meditation sessions.


In 2008 a study was conducted that concluded that the burning smoke of the Boswellia carteri trees resin was basically a psychoactive drug ( not like crack ) that relieves depression and anxiety. The study claims that the constituent known as incensole acetate is responsible for this. Another study showed significant improvements in patients suffering from osteoarthritis. In 2009, it was reported that it seems to suppress cancer cell viability. There are far more studies out there that prove the medicinal power of this sacred gift. There is no doubt based off of these facts that Frankincense is useful in the art of holistic healing, even when used as an incense.


Even before modern research, were many discoveries related to holistic healing not obvious to people in ancient times? People of historic times studied things in a different way than modern society. Historically, trial and error was the only means. So, there must be something special about this holy sacrament. If people have known about these treasures since at least the times of Jesus there must be something to them. According to the research, there definately is something to them. Shamanic cultures have are the original researchers of such treasures as Frankincense. Their philosophy and understanding into the mysteries of human psyche is epic.
