TRADITIONAL USAGE

Traditional Aromatherapy Uses
Traditionally used by qualified aromatherapists to slow down and deepen the breathing.
 
Used energetically to give protection to the auric field and dispel negative energies. Sprayed around the house it dispels negative energy and cleans out a new house ready for the new occupant.
Historical Information
Originally known as Olibanum (oil of Lebanon), it was the resin of the plant that was burned in charcoal. Pretty soon though, it was found that this smoke could also be pulled through a water flask and the resulting water had beneficial skin properties. Not actual steam distillation at all but an early development to expand the resin’s use.
