Chakra: Solar Plexus
Long beloved as a ritual incense, oil, and medicine, this aromatic resin has been traded across the world for at least 5,000 years. The smoke of Frankincense is used to purify a space and the souls within it, as well as carrying their prayers to the heavens.
As a Magistery, Frankincense creates an openness in the whole chest, easing tightness and constriction in the heart area, clearing weight and worry from the Heart center, and slowing and deepening the breath in a way that brings the mind to a more meditative state.
This combination of the opening of the Heart center of Venus and its related qualities of beauty and devotion, overlapped with the literal heart organ, ruled by the Sun and its centering energy of light and clarity, creates a wonderfully clear and uplifted state for meditation, contemplation, and spiritual practice.
