About the Plant:

Frankincense is made up of two words: the old French word frank (free, pure, or abundant), and the Latin word incensum (to smoke). When the bark of the tree is disturbed, it oozes out droplets of this precious substance. The beads of gummy resin are meticulously collected and then distilled for their essence.

Frankincense essential oils and abstracts are extracted from Frankincense resin. The way Frankincense is harvested is the Frankincense is tapped from Boswellia trees by slashing the bark (which is called striping) and allowing the resin to bleed out and harden. The resin then hardens and forms what is referred to as tears.

Where It Grows:

Frankincense trees grow in regions of the world that are extremely dry and experience intense sunlight. Frankincense Essential Oil comes from sticky, fragrant resin harvested from the Boswellia tree, which is native to the Middle East. Most frankincense comes from about five species of Boswellia trees, found in North Africa and India, but also in Oman, Yemen, and western Africa.

Traditional Uses and Lore:

Frankincense has been used for thousands of years throughout the Middle East in both homes and religious places of worship. It was thought to cleanse the environment, dispel evil spirits, protect against infection, and promote spirituality and prayer.

To get a sense of how valuable Frankincense was in ancient times, it was mentioned 20 times in the Bible. In Christianity, Frankincense is most commonly known as being one of three gifts brought by the Magi to the baby Jesus, alongside Myrrh and Gold. It has continued being burned ceremonially in the Catholic mass.

Frankincense was also used by Muslims for attracting angels and repelling evil forces and is burned in Mosques. In fact, Frankincense has been burned in religious ceremonies of various faiths over the centuries.
