The rarest, most potent of all Frankincense, this translucent green resin overflows with fresh hints of eucalyptus, lime, menthol and pure Arabian magic. Uniquely medicinal and psychoactive, there is ongoing research in various fields including the treatment of cancer and depression.
Research by John Hopkins University and the Hebrew University in Jerusalem indicated burning frankincense activates certain mood-enhancing ion channels in the brain. Ion channels found inside brain cells called microglia play an important role in transmitting nerve impulses and regulating cells, transporting nutrients and ions, activating T-cells and releasing beta-cell insulin. Several clinical studies have shown that modifying the activity of ion channels with frankincense reduces depression.
"Frankincense accesses a higher state of consciousness, connecting the individual to a universal spirituality. On a practical level, with its ability to still the mind and deepen the breath, it aids contemplation and meditation. Frankincense, the ancient pathway to prayer, still has the potential to enable the soul to soar.” Frankincense: Oman's Gift to the World, Juliet Highet.
Breathing in the wonderful smoke, chewing (it turns to a regular gum that can be discarded after all flavour has gone), or making a cold infusion tea (Frankincense Water) all allow this ancient medicine to work its magic. However, for more serious health concerns, Frankincense water allows for a regulated, consistent dose.
How to Make Frankincense Water
Drop 2 or 3 medium size tears of our medical grade Royal Green Hojari in a litre of pure water. Allow the water to sit overnight in a cool place, or put it in the fridge. The following morning the Frankincense water is ready. In the morning drink on an empty stomach and consume the rest of the water throughout the day. Once the bottle is empty, refill the with more water until the resin has been almost completely dissolved. At night prepare another bottle and continue with this cycle allowing your body the time to balance and heal. Add fresh lemon juice and a little honey for taste.
