Fun fact: Frankincense can grow without soil.
Frankincense was one of the gifts given to the baby Jesus from the three Magi.
People often wonder why this is so, after all, isn't it just a nicely scented
tree? Actually, at one time, frankincense was valued as highly as gold. It was
held in this high regard for thousands of years. Frankincense not only had many
healing properties, but was also burned to rid the sick of evil spirits, and
to purify body and soul. Because of its ability to slow down and deepen the
breath, frankincense helps to keep prayer and meditation focused. Unsurprisingly,
the Egyptians used it in the embalming process, but surprisingly they used it
in cosmetic face masks as well. Today, frankincense is as highly valued by aromatherapists
as it was in days of yore. With benefits that take care of both external and
internal problems, it truly is worth its weight in gold.
