The magic of: Frankincense & Myrrh

Frankincense

A resin from the Boswellia tree, a deciduous tree that grows on rocky outcrops.

As with all resins when burnt on charcoal it makes a lot of smoke but I have to say I think this is my favourite resin scent and again as with most resins it works well for cleansing and purifying.

A good resin to burn for spirituality and your spiritual connection, also for cleansing the chakras and promoting a general feeling of relaxation.

Frankincense can also bring about focus and clarity.

Carry with you for abundance and to attract love.

Myrrh

(Commiphora myrrha)

Another natural gum tree resin this one comes from a thorny tree that has a long history of perfume and incense use.

As with all resins it makes lots of smoke when burnt on charcoal so it works well to protect and purify. 

This one also helps you to heal spiritually and emotionally and brings a huge boost of courage with it too.

It has a strong Crone energy and therefore also good for Underworld workings.

I combine myrrh with frankincense a lot as it seems to blend together very well.
