Frankincense can strengthen a mind that is burdened with mental anxiety, nervous tension and stress. It revitalizes and soothes emotional wounds, burdens and trauma. This peaceful loving oil allows us to stabilize our mind and mental power. Frankincense has traditionally been used as a remedy for a wide variety of afflictions, including ulcers, hypertension, nausea, fever, indigestion, chest coughs and post-childbirth recovery. The smoke from burning frankincense drives away mosquitoes and other flying insects, reducing incidences of malaria in afflicted regions. Because frankincense was in high demand from Europe to Asia, the kingdoms of southern Arabia became an integral part of global economy with shipping connections to India, the Mediterranean and the Silk Road.
