Elevate your Life with Frankincense
Frankincense, as you might know, is one of the most precious essential oils that Young Living carries. Here is a little background about frankincense, an oil that elevates life.
Since ancient times, frankincense has been sacred in temples across the world. Why was its fragrant smoke given so much importance in worship, and why do some churches still burn frankincense as a major procedure in their worship services even today?
The appeal of frankincense has not dwindled as ancient times have rolled into the 21st century. Prayer and meditation with frankincense is a way that many spiritualists begin their day.
Also known as “olibanum,” Frankincense is derived from the Medieval French word for “real incense.” It is considered the “holy anointing oil” in the Middle East and has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years. It was well known during the time of Christ for its anointing and healing powers and was one of the gifts given to Christ at his birth. The Bible contains over 52 references to Frankincense. Frankincense was valued more than gold during those times, and only those with great wealth and abundance possessed it. The Egyptian word for frankincense is SNRT, and it can be translated as “scent of the deity” or “what qualifies man to communicate with a deity.” It is mentioned in one of the oldest known medical records, Ebers Papyrus (dating from 16th century BC), an ancient Egyptian list of 877 prescriptions and recipes.
