Christmas is here! As exciting as it can be, it can also bring a sense of urgency and stress to try to fulfil the dreams of loved ones. Frankincense is at its’ most popular at this time of year, but what some might not realise is that it is not only popular for religious reasons (according to the Nativity story, Frankincense was given as a gift by Gaspar, The King of Sheba, to Jesus), but the aroma helps to relieve stress and create a sense of serenity, making it wonderful for meditation.
Produced by the delicate Boswellia trees, it can take up to 10 years to create what some call “liquid gold”. The tree is given a slight incision where a milky substance seeps and is left to harden into a resin for a couple of weeks before being scraped off and steamed to become the liquid oil.
Frankincense Oil was used in the Limited Edition “Emerald & Gold” soap which, after popular demand, we will be bringing back in time for next Christmas. We don’t like limiting ourselves too much however, and have incorporated the essential oil into the Green Tea & Juniper soap bar that is available all year round. Carefully blended with Juniper and Geranium Rose essential oils, it creates an incredibly fresh and uplifting bar of soap to lift the mood after just a few deep breaths.
