The resin of this fascinating tree, native to India, Oman, Ethiopia, Somalia, Yemen and Saudi Arabia, has been used for over 5,000 years. It has been highly regarded as a medicine, an aromatic perfume, a ceremonial tool, and was once worth even more than gold.
Mystic Soul Frankincense comes from the Western state of Gujarat in India, very close to the border of Madhya Pradesh. It is 100% organic, unmixed & extremely high quality.
Frankincense has been used for thousands of years. It was so highly treasured that it was brought as one of the gifts of the Wise Men to be presented at Jesus birth. The resin was also found in the tombs of Egyptian mummies, used not only as an embalming agent, but also as an offering to help the departed souls make their journey to the afterlife.
Amongst many cultures around the world the fragrance of this resin was believed to increase one’s spiritual connection and intuition. The Chinese called it “fanhunxiang” meaning “calling back the soul fragrance.” It is often used in meditation, since the scent is calming, grounding and pleasant to the senses.
