(Boswellia carterii) G
Deities: Ra, Baal
Ritual Use : The ancient Egyptians burned frankincense at sunrise to honor Ra. To this day it is included in the composition of some of the incenses used in Catholic churches.
Magical Uses: When burned, frankincense releases powerful vibrations which not only uplift those of the area but also drive out all evil and negativity. Frankincense is therefore used in incenses of exorcism, protection, purification and consecration. It is also burned to induce visions and to aid meditation, and is added to sachets for luck, protection and spiritual growth. Rosemary may be used as a substitute for frankincense.
