Frankincense Boswellia Frereana (Organic)
Often referred to as the “King Of Frankincense”, Frankincense Frereana has tremendous physical and mental benefits:
- It supports the immune system and relieves respiratory issues. Frankincense Frereana has powerful antiseptic properties that fight the harmful microbes that cause bronchitis, congestion, sinusitis, coughs and other respiratory tract infections. Furthermore, Frankincense Frereana facilitates healthy, easy breathing.
- Frankincense promotes the regeneration of healthy cells and the maintenance of existing ones. It is cytoplactic – so many people successfully use it for skincare. It is most effective in soothing itches and rashes, smoothing wrinkles, and protecting dry, damaged or scarred skin. Furthermore, it’s also very effective as an antiseptic on cuts and wounds.
- Frankincense Frereana is a wonderful aid to meditation and relaxation. Firstly, it assists in achieving a calmer, deeper, slower breath; secondly, it increases focus; and finally, it helps clear negativity and any feelings of worry or anxiety. It is indeed a great stress reliever!
Also known as ‘Maydi’, Frankincense Frereana comes from the mountainous regions of northern Somalia. It has a very clean pine like aroma with a bold deep undertone and a hint of citrus. Once a precious and rare commodity, it was used a great deal in the Middle East by Ancient Empires (such as the Eygptians / Pharoahs who used it for embalming) all the way to Shamanistic and more secular cultures. Many believed that burning it allowed them to communicate with the gods. Frankincense was seen by some as a representation of light, connection and energy.
Frankincense is harvested by slashing the bark of Boswellia trees and allowing the resin to ooze out. (This rather milky resin is referred to as “al lubin” (the Arabic word for milk). This resin then hardens into a form that is known as “tears”. In ancient times, these “tears” were considered ancient drops of sunlight!
