It is finds good use in the treatment of congestion, joint inflammations and anxiety disorders. It is also chewed to get a fresher breath and stronger teeth. Long used in aromatherapy as a mood enhancer, a recent study carried out by researchers at Johns Hopkins University found that the burning of pure frankincense resin activates ion channels in the brain that can help to alleviate anxiety and stress. It was also found to stimulate the release of TRPV3 - a protein that drastically reduces the symptoms of depression. You can literally recreate ancient aromatic history in your own home. The smoky fragrance produced by burning resin on charcoal disks is quite unique and amazingly evocative.
