In the depths of the Brazilian rainforest, healers, curanderos, bore holes into the giant copaiba tree. As they break the bark and drive into the heart wood, thin yellow oleoresin pours forth that the curandero will the take back to her tribe to treat inflammation and pain.
Thousands of miles away, in Somalia, more tapping can be heard as gatherers pierce the bark of the frankincense tree to collect its fragrant resin. As the sun sets, the resin is stored to harden then is shipped out in the winter for aromatherapists to use as a comforting balm.
Frankincense slows and restores elasticity, releasing tightness and tension.
Combined with essential oil of the spruce tree these resins calm, relax and relieve.
The evergreen fragrance is enhanced by joyful and happy orange, relaxing the frown, and bringing back a smile.
