Frankincense - also known as Olibanum - is known for its soothing and relaxing qualities. Used throughout the ages to enhance spirituality, mental perception, meditation, prayer and consciousness. Frankincense is also great for the respiratory system as it assists with breathing.
Frankincense has been used as a natural disinfectant as well as an anti-ageing remedy amongst the Somali population from generation to generation. Communities within certain regions of Somalia and Somaliland have been ethically harvesting the same Boswellia trees that their forefathers have, passing down traditional methods and other vital hand-harvesting techniques. Somali households traditionally use frankincense for many purposes. For example, whenever guests are on the way, you can expect the calming scent of frankincense lingering in the air. The burning of Frankincense is particularly useful after big family meals, as incense tends to remove food and other odours pretty quickly without being overwhelming. FUN FACT: many of the Ancient Egyptians pharaohs were buried and mummified using frankincense.
