Frankincense is the definitive incense resin, and it can be burned alone or as an ingredient in countless formulas. Frankincense is used for purification, prosperity, protection, spiritual elevation, psychic power, and as an offering to the gods. It is truly an all-purpose incense for any intention.

Frankincense tears are the dried sap of several species of Boswellia trees from North Africa and the Arabian Peninsula, Boswellia carterii being the most common. The use of Frankincense as an incense is very ancient and was found in the tombs of Tutankhamen.

A friend of mine who is a Bedoin prince from a villiage on the Nile River in Sudan taught me to chew Frankincense like chewing gum. Like Myrrh, it seems to have many applications for oral health and hygeine, and it makes your breath wonderfully fresh. Certainly Awad's heart-melting smile with his perfect white teeth won me over to this use!

If you compound your own resin incense for ritual or just enjoyment, frankincense blends and harmonizes well with any other incense resin or herb.

My Natural Magick Shop grimoire opens with the motto: "Hardly anything ever went wrong because you messed up and added too much Frankincense."
