Frankincense (Boswellia Carterrii) With its enduring aroma, rich with spicy and woody elements to elevate the mind and bring peace to the senses.
Frankincense oil originates from the boswellia tree, the trees exude a gum substance, sometimes known as tears, these tears then harden over time with contact from the air, when the tears are completely dried, the resin is collected and is steam distilled to produce the Frankincense oil.
The Egyptians and the Hebrews spent a fortune importing it from the Phoenicians such as was its value in those days; it was worth almost as much as gold, so much so that it was offered as a gift to the infant Jesus. The oils were used extensively for its reputed exceptional rejuvenation properties, and are believed to help reduce fine lines, so it became an essential cosmetic for the wealthy and noble of men of the time.
Frankincense has a wonderful cheering effect to promote a sense of well being; this is why it became one of the symbolic gifts. So we hope you feel equally as special while you enjoy Fabulous Frankincense products from Charles Jordi.
