Origins of Frankincense
Frankincense (also known as olibanum) and myrrh were the first tree resins used as incense by the Egyptians. They were buried to clear the air in sickrooms during religious ceremonies to drive away evil spirits. They ranked alongside precious stones as a valuable commodity and, according to the Bible, were offered by the three Kings to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. The gum comes from a small tree grown in Arabia, Africa and China. It was first brought to Europe in the late seventeenth century.
Extraction / Harvesting Process
To make the gum a deep incision is made in the tree trunk where the resin exudes in tear-shaped globules which harden on contact with the air. The essence is spicy, with camphor undertones, but becomes lemony when mixed with myrrh. The essence is spicy, with camphor undertones, but becomes lemony when mixed with myrrh.
