All about the magic of Frankincense

Updated: Apr 7


Frankincense, have you heard of it and do you use it?


My kids and I call it Franki and we use it quite often - burns, ant bites and calming down.


We have Royal Green Hojari Frankincense in the shop.


Frankincense resin comes from Boswellia tree. When the tree is injured, a milky white sticky substance begins to flow to heal the tree. Over a period of time, the substance has been exposed to the air and begins to harden and change to a yellow colour.


To harvest the resin from The Boswellia trees, a tool is used to scrape deep enough to access the liquid and then is allowed the time to flow and is then collected once the liquid has hardened.


It is considered “sweat of the gods” and “king of oils” because of its extraordinary health benefits.


Frankincense has been burned throughout the ages for


  • slowing down & deepening breathing

  • soothing the spirit & deep relaxation

  • enhancing positive mood

  • enhancing mental perception & memory

  • deepening meditation

  • relieving anxiety and reducing negative self-talk

  • spiritual cleansing

  • soothing stomach, removing coughs, thinning blood, cleaning wounds, oiling joints and as an antiseptic

  • repelling mosquitos, sandflies, moths and other insects

  • keeping your environment free of airborne microbes


When Frankincense is burned, it has an elegant soft scent. The scent is uplifting, comforting, cleansing and offers energetic protection.

Similar to white sage, you can use Frankincense to drive out negativity.

Important Note: For internal use and medicinal purposes, only the medical grade Hojari Frankincense resin such as Royal Green Hojari is recommended. Of course this should not be a substitute to a medical treatment prescribed by a healthcare professional.

Please also note that these statements have not been evaluated by the TGA and it is important that you undergo your own research into the therapeutic properties of this frankincense.


How to use Royal Green Howard Frankincense internally;


How to Make Frankincense water:


Put 2 medium size tears of medical grade Royal Hojari resin in 1.5 litres of purified/mineral water. Allow the water to sit overnight, it can be placed in the fridge or left in a cool spot.

The next morning the water mixture is ready to consume. Drink the water mixture on an empty stomach and consume the rest throughout the day. Once the bottle is empty, you can refill the bottle with more water until resin has been almost completely dissolved.

Prepare another bottle at night, as above and continue with this cycle allowing your body the time to balance and heal.


Used as a gum:


It can be used as a gum. It is quite soft once chewed and does tend to stick to your teeth. I find the taste is quite strong to begin with but does settle down.
