Symbol of the Divine Name, an emblem of prayer, frankincense has an ancient history as a sacred and civic ceremonial incense burned to focus the mind and call the soul. It was one of the gifts from the Magi (Wise Men) to the Christ child at His birth. The Chinese have a long history of using the herb medicinally to help painful conditions caused by blood stagnation. Start the New Year out right. Burn some frankincense and open your mind and soul to all that is sacred and divine. Give thanks for one year and prepare to start fresh for the next. Let your blood be moved!
