three wise men baby jesus

        Frankincense is considered holy by almost all religions, and various cultures but even has its place in Christianity. Yes, the same stuff from the popular historic story from The Holy Bible of the "Three Wise Men" who brought baby Jesus gifts of Frankincense and Myrrh, and gold. Matthew 2:10-11 "When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. And when they came inside, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and Frankincense, and Myrrh." So, 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 divine symbol of which represents purity in some cultures. In Saudi Arabia it's chewed and eaten recreationally! You can find it mentioned many times in the bible. A website called has a nice page full of Bible quotes which mentions Frankincense.

               The burning smoke is adored for its pleasant aroma, and is suggested as a meditation aid because of its calming nature by some. The Bible suggest that we meditate on gods word: "Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful." ~ Joshua 1:8; I've read a few recent studies that suggest that this stuff can be DNA protective. wow! It's suggested in literature with academic references as a natural herb for those with cancer. Some cultures use it as a smudge to cleanse a home much like a preist does with burning sage... but many warn of the dangers of new age practices, myself included. You will need a Holy Bible if you attempt to do certain new age practices.

Frankincense has been used in a sacred context in scripture, as an incense,used in offerings, and in anointing oil. The Lord himself gave a recipe to make holy annointing oil in Exodus 30:22-29: "Moreover the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Take thou also unto thee principal spices, of pure myrrh five hundred shekels, and of sweet cinnamon half so much, even two hundred and fifty shekels, and of sweet calamus two hundred and fifty shekels, And of cassia five hundred shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary, and of oil olive an hin: And thou shalt make it an oil of holy ointment, an ointment compound after the art of the apothecary: it shall be an holy anointing oil. And thou shalt anoint the tabernacle of the congregation therewith, and the ark of the testimony, And the table and all his vessels, and the candlestick and his vessels, and the altar of incense, And the altar of burnt offering with all his vessels, and the laver and his foot. And thou shalt sanctify them, that they may be most holy: whatsoever toucheth them shall be holy." You can see how sacred things like Myrrh and Frankincense can be in Christianity. We have been blessed with these staples of life! We must never fall victim to idolatry though, and must put the created above the creator.

Over the years you learn new things about "ethnobotanicals" like Frankincense. I never realized how sacred this stuff was throughout the history of the bible. We can see that not all plants are used in shamanic practices, and there is in fact a Christian way to use them. I also discovered on accident one time that I can eat a small amount of it chewed when I'm feeling nautious and it stops that feeling right away! I've never read anything about the stuff being used this way but it never fails. To this day I try to share this story with anyone and everyone I can. It very much makes an excellent Christmas gift, as it's not everyday you can say you've even been around Frankincense or Myrrh. Feel free to study its use in the Bible and learn more about why it was so sacred to so many people for so many centuries.

How do I burn it?

Don't burn this stuff indoors..

            We can see in Leviticus 2:1-2 that Frankincense is burnt as an offering to the Lord. Leviticus 2:1-2 "And when any will offer a meat offering unto the LORD, his offering shall be of fine flour; and he shall pour oil upon it, and put frankincense thereon: 2 And he shall bring it to Aaron's sons the priests: and he shall take thereout his handful of the flour thereof, and of the oil thereof, with all the frankincense thereof; and the priest shall burn the memorial of it upon the altar, to be an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD:" If you are planning on burning it indoors then do not use the swift lite burners.. Open a window or better yet, do it outside.. Swift Lite Charcoal Tablets are useful but only for outdoor use. If you want to burn Frankincense 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. It's not the ideal way to use it, but you can dodge the nasty charcoal stuff. Using an electric incense burner or Swift Lite Charcoal Tablets. will allow you to get the easiest burning incense possible out of the resin though. You can also use oil diffusers. It's way cheaper to make your own from raw material than to buy it.

Medical Research

        On a final note there has been much research conducted on the chemicals found inside the Frankincense tree 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. Historic 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. Remember about what God said in Genesis 3 though, and to avoid the forbidden fruit as to not suffer the consequences for obeying the Most High God.

In 2008 a study was conducted that concluded that the burning smoke of the Boswellia carteri trees resin was basically a therapeutic substance 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 when used properly. It's not always safe to consume something every single day.. 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, again when properly. Also, different plants effect different people differently.

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 definitely is something to them. Avoid idolatry, all glory be to the Most High God of the bible.
