Frankincense is an aromatic resin obtained from trees of the genus Boswellia Sacra in the family Burseraceae.
This special incense blend has a calming effect on the emotions. Between its physical properties, Frankincense has the ability to slow down and deepen the breath producing feelings of calm, which are very conductive to prayer and meditation.
The resin has been burnt on altars and in temples since the earliest ancient civilization. The origin of its use lay in the fact that it was one of the most prized and valuable substances in the ancient world. Both Hebrews and Egyptians spent a considerable sum of money importing it from the Phoenicians (today Lebanon), and from this ancient civilisation the Fenix / Phoenix mythology was originated and then spread throughout different cultures around the world.
