Traditional Uses of Frankincense  

Frankincense has been used traditionally by burning it on charcoal, which produces the rich aromatic fragrance through its smoke. There are two ways to use Frankincense:

1. Burning on charcoal

Step 1. Place a piece of self-lighting charcoal in an appropriate charcoal burner, light with a windproof lighter if possible, as it is better than using tongs for lighting charcoal.

Step 2. Add a piece of Frankincense of your choosing on top of charcoal. For less smoke, use smaller pieces; for longer burns and more smoke, use larger tears. Enjoy!


2. Drinking as tea or as frankincense water

Frankincense is traditionally used as a tea or as frankincense water. Note that ONLY a few frankincense resins can be ingested, which are listed below in order of purity and highest medicinal qualities:

3. Superior BONE white B. Sacra frankincense

Method 1. As a Tea 

1.) Add 1 medium size tear to 1 cup of  boiling water, stir for a few minutes. The tear may not always dissolve completely and may be more effective if crushed or ground up.

2.) Pour into a mug and drink as a tea.
