Burning Omani frankincense resin
One of the favourite things to bring from Oman is frankincense resin incense. For millennia, religious leaders have contended that burning incense resin is excellent for the soul. Now, biologists have learned that it is suitable for our brains too. As ScienceDaily shared (source), an international team of scientists, including researchers from Johns Hopkins University and the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, described how burning frankincense activates poorly understood ion channels in the brain to alleviate anxiety or depression.
