Frankincense is a fragrant resin obtained from the boswellia tree. It has many uses: for its beautiful Oriental fragrance, to clean rooms and objects or for personal cleaning. Various superstitions claim that frankincense can also purify your soul. Frankincense is often used in various combinations, for example with myrrh and balsam, which give it a specific spicy scent when set alight. There are four main types of resin, which differ mainly in the time at which they are harvested. It is gathered by chopping the bark of trees, which releases resin from the tree; this resin then hardens in the shape of a tear. In the wild, the boswellia tree can grow in very unusual and inhospitable places, such as on rocks. The resin has a high content of terpenes, sesquiterpenes and diterpenes, which gives it a strong aroma when burned. High-quality frankincense is widely used by the Catholic Church in its rites and prayers. You can also use various combinations of frankincense and its aromas at home, where it can give a beautiful scent to your rooms and relax your mind. Immerse yourself in the distinct Oriental aroma and enjoy the cleansing effects of incense!
To burn incense, you will need: a censer, tweezers, quick light coals and matches or a lighter. You can also use clean dry sand, but it’s not necessary. If you use sand, pour it into the censer in a layer about one centimeter thick. Pick up the coal with the tweezers and ignite it. Keep it lit for about twenty seconds until it stops sparkling. Then place it in the censer. After about a minute, start dropping frankincense on top of the coal. Start with a small amount and gradually add more according to your preferences.
Frankincense should not be handled by children. Always use a censer intended for this purpose. Never leave a censer with a burning coal unattended. After you finish, extinguish the coal with water.
