Burning Loban/Benzoin As An Anti-Depressant :
‘Depression’ is a term that too many people are familiar with. Irrespective of gender and age, it can affect anyone. But, what makes it interesting that it is not an external disease that can be treated quickly with application of medicines or antiseptics. Being a mental problem, it requires a lot more care and attention.
In today’s life, when no time is available, people often seek short-term relief measures in the form of allopathy, which is conventional means of consuming drugs that incite symptoms opposite to those of the disorder or disease. Even though these pills are quick and effective, they cause a lot of side effects and after effects which are highly undesirable. Moreover, the body develops resistance against these pills, and with time, it is required to increase dosage, which again, directly correlates to harsher side effects.

Ayurvedic and homeopathic medicines are slow to act, but they do not cause any form of side effects. For example, burning of Loban/Benzoin or Frankincense, does wonders in the long run.
According to The Speaking Tree, ‘Loban’ or “Benzoin” is actually extracted from the resin out of the Boswellia tree, which is then further churned into creating oils and incense.
