The surprising benefits of Frankincense
It’s a well known story that the three Wise Men brought the gift of Frankincense to the birth of Jesus. Have you ever wondered why is it that Frankincense was considered fit for a king? The answer is in the depth of its uses – from the every day daily rituals to helping fostering a meditative mind. It nurtures and protects mind, body and spirit.
On one level, it has extremely practical uses & properties for self-care every day rituals:
- Boosts the immune system
- Re-generates the skin
- Improves digestion
- Reduces stress in the body
- Helps clear coughs and colds
- Scars heal faster
- Fosters a feeling of satisfaction
- Promotes more restful sleep
But as well as these very bodily benefits, Frankincense works deeply on the emotional and even the spiritual level.
It has actually been used in all major meditative traditions because it slows and deepens the breath, putting you into an immediate quieter mind-state. This mental state helps to turn the mind from the busyness of the everyday and connect with more sacred elements.
While we can’t know what was going through the minds of the Wise Men while they were choosing what they’d bring as gifts, if you introduce Frankincense into your every day, you’ll get a good sense of why.
To make Frankincense an easy part of your every day, use Yogandha Ground (in your bag or on your desk at least once per day to step you out of the busy-mind) and Yogandha Relax as part of your nightly ritual. Rub on the face (for its incredibly skin regenerating) massage the feet to fully absorb its many bodily benefits and rub on the arms, so you’ll breathe it in and unwind into a deep and restful sleep.
