Frankincense (Boswellia carterii)
Protection, Exorcism, Spirituality
When burned, frankincense releases powerful vibrations which not only uplift those of the area, but also drive out all evil and negativity. It is therefore used in incenses of exorcism, protection, purification and consecration. It is also burned to induce visions and to aid in meditation. It is added to sachets for luck, protection and spiritual growth.
Rosemary may be used as a substitute for frankincense.
