The Magic of Frankincense for Energy Clearings
Frankincense is a resin that comes from the boswellia tree. In all of my energy clearings (also known as space clearings), I diffuse frankincense essential oil. Here’s why:
Frankincense has a long standing history as having highly spiritual properties. The sap is dried and turned into a resin, which can be burned. You know those metal, smoked filled balls you may have seen in a Catholic church? That’s frankincense!
The resin has been used for thousands of years because of its power in removing negativity from our energetic auras and from the environment. It’s an ancient tool of great wisdom which can ward off negativity and evil. Additionally, the smoke can connect us with our higher self and the spiritual realm. That is why so many religions still use it today in various ceremonies and rites of passage.
In my energy clearings, I opt to use Young Living frankincense essential oil instead of burning the resin. Essential oils are highly, highly concentrated plants. The oil is produced through a steam distillation process. I use Young Living in particular because this brand is one of the best on the market and is considered “therapeutic grade.”
I choose to diffuse the oil, instead of burn the resin, for a variety of reasons. Plants have their own energetic frequencies and because essential oil is basically a super-charged version of the plant because it is so concentrated, using essential oil in an energy clearing means I’m using a very potent version of the plant.
Aside from the spiritual properties of the oil, there are many secondary benefits to my clients. First, the oil smells great! The client is getting aromatherapy through the diffusion of the oils in addition to the energetic clearing properties.
The diffuser sends microparticles of the oil into the air. Since I place multiple diffusers in the home or business where I’m conducting the energy clearing, the oil is being dispersed throughout the entire space.
Aside from smelling great, the oil has numerous health benefits. It is a mood elevator and stress reliever. It’s a respiratory illness reducer and boosts the immune system, as well as a natural disinfectant.
My clients are getting all these secondary benefits of the essential oil when I diffuse it during a space clearing, in addition to the primary purpose of the frankincense clearing the negative energy from the space and connecting the space to the spiritual realm. Frankincense is truly magical!
