Frankincense

Frankincense and coffee

­čî│Frankincense is a tree sap that gives a sweet pine-like aroma when heated. It’s been used since ancient times to heighten spiritualityÔťĘ, to cleanse a room­čž╣, and to ward off bad spirits.­čĹ╗

Frankincense helps mental clarity­čÖő, relaxation­čžś­čĆż and is anti-fungal­čî×. The special smell comes from special moleculesÔÜŤ. Research has shown that it may help with pain relief, depression and anxiety.

Frankincense is often part of a coffee ceremony. An invitation to attend one considered a mark of friendship or respect and is an excellent example of Ethiopian hospitality.
