Olibanum

Olibanum

One of the most ancient of fragrance materials with many spiritual and medical uses, and also known as frankincense. This aromatic, amber coloured resin is released from trees bark when they are in self-defence mode (sometimes the resin is said to be the tears of the tree). Historically used as part of the mummification process in Ancient Egypt. Can be burned as an incense where it brings an atmosphere of sanctity. Its essential oil is a fascinating blend of green pine, lemon, clean woods and sweet smoke.
