Benefits of Frankincense Resin
There are many benefits of frankincense resin that people do not know of. While frankincense has been popularised due to the essential oil trend in the last few years, we talk about this article’s source.
Frankincense resin is the main item that makes the essential oils that most are used to, but let me share why the natural resin is even more potent than the extracts or the essential oil.
Frankincense Resin Benefits
Many benefits come from the original raw resin of the sacred frankincense (Boswellia Sacra), and they are used in several ways and, mainly by infusing the resin in water.
While several modern medical practitioners may deny this theory, it is known that the healing properties of the sacred frankincense date back to more than 6,000 years ago. Till this very day, many people in the Gulf countries still practice natural sacred frankincense in their daily lives.
While burning the resin helps cleanse a space and provides a calming effect, the infused water supplies the miraculous wonders of natural healing. If you want to see all the properties, you can also read more about the healing properties of the frankincense resin in our other article.

How to make Frankincense Infused Water?
The process is straightforward and can be done by just about anyone. All you need is the raw sacred frankincense resin and a water container.
Please note that we highly recommend using the sacred green frankincense from Oman as this is the best grade in the world. The resin looks pale yellowish and greenish.
- Take three to five pieces of raw sacred frankincense resin
- Wash the resin
- Prepare a two-litre water container with room temperature water
- Put in the resin pieces
- Let it infuse overnight
- Consume the following day
- Consume as and when you like
- Top up the water when required
- You can do this for one week to 10 days
- Replace the sacred frankincense resin and repeat
There you go, it is relatively simple and can be taken by both adults and children. It would help if you also noted that room temperature water is the best for this.
What kind of Frankincense Resin should I use? The most common is the general green frankincense resin from the Hojari grade, but some prefer to use the premium green frankincense resin as it is a much higher grade.
What Type Of Water Should I Use? Hot water will dissolve the resin faster, and the water will become murky, while cold water will be prolonged and less opaque. But the slower it infuses, the longer it takes.
How Fast Will Changes Take Place? The changes do not happen immediately as our bodies need time to heal; hence, you should drink the infused frankincense water as your daily water.
Some people see changes in them after a few days, while some may see them after a couple of weeks. Again, we are all built differently, and no two are the same.
What Will I Experience On The First Time? In most cases, you will pass a lot of gas by flatulence or burping. This is the natural reaction from your body which usually lasts for a couple of days.
There have been many different views about the benefits of frankincense resin over the years, probably due to a lack of understanding of this natural product. While we have been selling them for a while, more importantly, we have been using frankincense before selling them.
