Frankincense Tears Organic
Frankincense Tears Organic- Probably best known because of the Nativity story, Frankincense Tears Organic – derived from the resin of a tree called boswellia serrata and other species of the same – has an interesting history. In Hebrew, its name is levonah, meaning “white;” in Arabic, a closely-related language, it is ‘al-luban, a term referring to milk; the name of the modern country of Lebanon is derived from both. However, it came to be known as “frankincense” when crusaders – many of whom were French or “Frankish” – introduced it to Europe during the Middle Ages.
Frankincense Tears Organic is used in numerous ways, including the manufacture of perfume and aromatherapy; ancient Egyptians used burnt powdered frankincense as eyeliner. The burning of the dried c/s boswellia serrata resin has also played a part in the religious rites of all three Abrahamic traditions.
Although we cannot make any claims of its value as a medicinal herb, recent studies at John Hopkins University and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem have shown that the fumes of burning Frankincense Tears Organic helped to calm nervous lab mice; the BBC reported a recent study at the University of California in which arthritis patients experienced substantial relief.
