Frankincense resin has been used for centuries to cleanse spaces and to bring consciousness towards new beginnings. Ayurvedic medicine has been using frankincense for thousands of years to treat arthritis, heal wounds, strengthen the female hormonal system and to protect against pathogenic microorganisms. According to Ayurveda, daily burning of frankincense in the home helps maintain good health.

From the maker: "My story with this magic resin began 40 years ago in a town on the Southern coast of India.
My grandmother lived by the water in Kochi, Kerala. Every evening she would ceremonially smoke her home with frankincense resin. It was a ritual I loved, it filled her home with a warm earthy scent - a cleanse, purifying the space daily and helped maintain one’s spiritual centre. It was a place I found comfort in for many years.
Burning incense was a ceremony for me. As I got deeper into my spiritual practice and started travelling the world, that unforgettable scent still lingered in my mind. Everything I found since had an artificial smell that somehow did not feel natural - until I met a man from a village on the outskirts of my hometown of Kochi who was on his own quest, a little bit of an eccentric! He would gather frankincense resin from forest produce, crush coconut shell, all using self-made prototypes in his backyard until he was able to create the nostalgia of my youth ...on a stick."
