It’s Back!
Exciting news for fans of the long-missed Trapp Frankincense and Rain candle! Once known as Rejuvenating Rain, this wildly popular  fragrance was discontinued in 2007. Due to popular demand, Trapp has brought it back, for a limited time! Stock up on the 7 oz candle, 2 oz votive, or 3.4 oz room spray while supplies last. This candle makes a wonderful gift for the holidays. It is also an excellent candle for you to treat yourself! The Trapp Frankincense and Rain candle smells clean from the lemony, piney goodness of frankincense. I would use this candle throughout the home to recreate the refreshing effect of opening all of your windows on days when the windows must remain closed.

What IS frankincense?
Frankincense is harvested from the Boswellia tree, native to Somalia, Yemen, and similar climates. This tree thrives in the harshest environments and has been known to grow right out of a rock!¬† The finest frankincense resin comes from the Boswellia Sacra tree. This highly fragrant resin smells like a harmonious marriage of lemon and pine. Frankincense has been used for many religious ceremonies, burned as incense as an offering to the gods. It is perhaps most often recalled as one of the gifts brought to Jesus after his birth. In aromatherapy practice, frankincense has been noted to help “deepen breathing, aid relaxation, and cause the lungs to expand. Modern science backs up these observations by showing that, when burned, frankincense releases molecules of trahydrocannabinole, a psychoactive compound that may be responsible for uplifting the spirit.”¬† Click here for more information about frankincense in aromatherapy.
