Frankincense has a balsamic, slightly lemony aroma. It's somewhat camphor-like and woody. It is a comforting scent that soothes, warms, relaxes the mind and aids in meditation.
Resin, one of the oldest forms of incense, is made directly from aromatic plant resins, gums, and woods and is meant to be burned on small charcoal tablets.
Resin incense has been in use for ages. It is used for ceremonies, aromatherapy, meditation and creating a spiritual atmosphere:
Use a heat proof dish
Fill bottom with sand
Place a lit charcoal tablet on top of sand
Sprinkle 1/4 tsp of resin chunks on tablet
Resin will burn for 5 - 10 min
