We most often think of Frankincense around the holidays because of the connection of the magi gifting the new King – Frankincense, Gold and Myrrh.
The specific species that was said to be given by the magi was Frankincense Sacra. This varietal is from the Arabian Trees of Oman in the Dhofar Region, a 5,000 year old specie of trees.
Most of the varieties you see on the market are Boswellia Carterri and Boswellia Serrata. These due indeed have their on potent healing effects but I want to focus on the magical Boswellia Sacra (sacred frankincense). It starts out with a strong pine fragrance and wonders off into floral and ancient notes. It is reminiscent of our true home where the spirit/soul feels safe and connected.
This sacred oil allows the ego to let go and the spirit take over in one’s life. If this type of frankincense calls to you, it is surely about to give you a powerful boost in honoring your quintessential nature.
Man is a microcosm or a little world, because he is an extract from all the stars and planets of the whole firmament, from the earth and the elements and so he is their quintessence(the most perfect example of class). – Phillipus Paracelsus
From a linear and scientific stance, Frankincense Sacra is a potent anti-tumor agent causing apoptosis in cancer cells. The main compound is acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid, or AKBA. It is a potent cancer fighting triterpene produced by this incredible varietal. No wonder it was fit for a king. The antiquity of this incredible oil is something to hold reverence for.
Our bodies love the turpenes from medicinal trees and plants. We uptake the healing medicine into the cell and decode their powerful messages. They are a perfect fit for mans cellular structure. The body is an intelligent machine and the plants/trees and herbal kingdom are potent attendants to creating wholeness here on earth.
Lastly, Frankincense Sacra offers an anti-aging solution with powerful compounds that work to banish inflammation and wrinkling skin. Take a few drops and add to your favorite carrier oil and apply to the skin.
Gain ancient wisdom through this healing medicine, plug in to the ancestral matrix, raise your frequency and tune into the scents from your sacred home.
