Traditionally Frankincense has been burned on charcoal for its aromatic smoke. It also had been since ancient times been used as medicine by taking internally. There are only three types of Frankincense from our range you can digest, and they are the Yellow, Green and Royal grades. All three can be chewed like a sweet or made in to a drink.
An oil burner can be used for resin as well as essential oils. We recommend you start by placing some foil on the dish of the oil burner. This will prevent the dish becoming resinous and stained. Light a tea candle and place in the oil burner. Sprinkle some Frankincense powder or a crushed resin on to the foil. Theres no need to add water like with essential oils. A great way to burn without the smoky atmosphere.
Firstly make sure you have a heat proof incense burner. Terracotta is the best material as it can withstand the heat. Use a lighter to heat the charcoal held with a pair of tongs. Place the charcoal onto the incense burner. Wait for the charcoal to fully heat (30secs). Choose your favourite Frankincense and place on top of charcoal. Sit back and enjoy the aromatic smoke.
There are 3 ways to take Frankincense internally. the first way is to just simply chew on a raw piece of Frankincense. No need to wash it , just simply pop it into the mouth and start chewing. The other two are as a drink. To make Frankincense in to drink it can only be made with or yellow, green and royal grades. As these are the three therapeutic grades and have many healing properties.
Pour 3-4 mugs of water into a saucepan. Heat the water and bring to the boil. Drop one piece of Frankincense resin preferably the size of a cashew nut into the pan. Stir continuously until resins dissolves into the water. The resin is very sticky and will leave residue on the side of the pan which is difficult to remove. Try to use all of the resin to dissolve in the pan. Once dissolved pour into a mug. Any small bits of resin are total fine to consume in the drink. We advise you use a pan sole for the use of Making Frankincense Tea. Can be drunk at any time of the day best results are in the morning or night on an empty stomach. Once a day is enough for treating an illness, otherwise every 2 days is great for health.
Use a 1 litre bottle of mineral or spring water to add a piece of Frankincense resin. Leave the bottle at room temperature for 24 hours and then place in the fridge. You can drink the water as much as you like through out the day as ordinary water. When the bottle becomes empty simply pour the resin into another bottle or top up the same bottle with water. Repeat the process again. The same resin can be used until the water no longer becomes cloudy. Maximum time for storing the resin in the water is approximately 3 months. Frankincense water is very refreshing and rejuvenating.
