The Gift of Frankincense at Christmas

Mathew, Chapter 2A Gift of Frankincense

One of my favorite times of year is Christmas.  Since becoming a mother this holiday has become even more special to me. Not just because I enjoy seeing the holiday through my children’s eyes, but because I feel intensely drawn to Mary- the mother of Jesus. God gave us his only son as a sacrifice so that we could experience God’s grace and the gift of eternal life in heaven.  Having two sons of my own, I realize even more how great a gift Jesus is to humanity, and what a holy and faithful woman Mary was.  God provided the world with the gift of Frankincense, one of my most beloved essential oils.

Frankincense

FrankincenseHistorical Uses:

Frankincense (Boswelia carterii, fereana, and sacra) is obtained from the resin of a small tree, the Boswelia, native to North Africa and the Middle East.  It was highly prized in the ancient world.  Ancient Egyptians used it in the mummification process, as it is skin preserver.  It slows the breathing and calms anxiety, which is probably why it was used by ancients in religious ceremonies.  It is still used in religious ceremonies today, in the Catholic church this is the incense that is burned.  Ancients also used it to deodorize and purify the air in their homes and palaces.  It was very valuable and highly prized.  It was given to the baby Jesus by the Magi, as documented in the Book of Matthew.
