HISTORY: In ancient Egypt, frankincense was described as a "substance capable of inducing a divine state." It was found in the tomb of the Egyptian king Tutankhamun, who died around 3330 years ago. At that time, incense was used to allow the soul to find its way back to the higher dimensions. The Roman Empire was also very fond of the sacred resin known as olibanum. A bowl of incense was found in almost every household to protect against evil, honor the gods, and remove unpleasant odors. Hippocrates, the most famous physician of ancient Greece, used frankincense to treat wounds, stomach and digestive complaints, and respiratory diseases. Indian Ayurveda has also been using frankincense for over 5000 years.
It was revived as an Ayurvedic remedy by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in particular: The three magi from the East, who had come to see the newborn baby Jesus, brought incense as one of their gifts. For the Christian church, incense still symbolizes prayer ascending to God, worship, and purification.
