For centuries, frankincense, like its heady fragrance, held sway over the fortunes of kingdoms and entrepots across ancient Arabia, the Mediterranean and the Far East. It vied with gold and precious stones for the hearts of many a king and queen of antiquity. And held pride of place in ancient Greek and Roman religious rituals. History abounds with accounts of this aromatic resin's exalted status in times of yore. Roman fleets and Arabian dhows called regularly at ancient ports in this region to lift huge quantities of this gum resin.
Blends Well With:
Citrus oils like Orange, Bergamot, Neroli, Lavender, Clary Sage (for high flying spirits!), Patchouli & Vetiver, Rose and Sandalwood;
Frankincense slows and deepens the breath, and is used to support meditation, spiritual quest and prayer in many different cultures, from Catholic/Orthodox Christianity to India, China etc. It has forever been associated with divinity, and allegedly was one of the presents given to the newborn Christ. However, it is mentioned a total of 22 times in the bible. Frankincense is harvested by incising the tree trunks, much like when harvesting maple syrup or natural gum. The excreted resin hardens, and forms so called "tears".
If you are purchasing this Essential Oil blended with Jojoba, increase the number of drops you add to your body care or bath according to your liking. You can use oils blended with Jojoba in a diffuser, but it is not recommended in diffusers that work with cotton pads - Car Diffuser, Scent Ball, Spa Scenter - or nebulizers.
Visualizing, spiritually connecting, centering. Probably the most introspective oil. Balances extremes of emotion and restores inner tranquility. Clearing, purifying, warming, uplifting and revitalizing.One of the best aromas for creating a meditative environment.
Frankincense is also a great fixative (a fixative is a substance that binds other compounds, slowing down their evaporation and thereby making their fragrance last longer) and preservative. It's also a valuable ingredient in skin care for mature and dry complexions.
The potency and incredible fragrancing power of this Essential Oil make it a great investment, even though it is one of the pricier oils. If you find it hard to dose the pure oil correctly (it is incredibly strong and intense!), or shy away from the cost, start with Essential Oils blended with Jojoba Oil.
Today, two millennia later, this fragrance of royalty continues to enchant the hearts and senses of people in this country (Oman).
Festive events like weddings, the birth of a newborn, and so on, are incomplete without the burning of frankincense. Moreover, in Omani homes across the Sultanate, frankincense is indispensable to the ritual of demonstrating one's hospitality to visiting guests.
Incense burners are passed around so visitors can air themselves in the heady scent of the burning frankincense. Truly, frankincense remains the centrepiece of Oman's vibrant heritage, enriched as it is by exotic versions of the fragrance, notably bokhur, attar and other traditional perfumes. Such is the pivotal place these prized fragrances have in the daily lives of Omanis that it has spawned a flourishing cottage industry in the Dhofar Governorate.
Despite all the history and romance surrounding the resin, its source — the Boswellia tree — is less spectacular to behold. Bereft of leaves in summer, each tree features a profusion of gnarled branches.
Hundreds of such trees grow along the fringes of the arid Nejd desert or the dry lower reaches of the jebels in the Dhofar region. Incisions made on the trunk of these trees yield a pearly white liquid that hardens into semi-opaque lumps.
Omanis who have been at the forefront of Dhofar's frankincense trade for generations run the stalls. Many among them are expert blenders who produce a bewildering variety of bokhur fragrances, the recipes of which are closely guarded secrets. Bokhur production varies from one blender to another, but the most exotic types include ingredients like oudh (scented wood from India and the Far East), sandalwood, attar, rosewater, myrrh, raw perfume oils and a variety of aromatic resins and extracts.
