Frankincense comes from the resins of Boswellia trees. The resin is originally as a form of white milky sap, while after exposed to air, the sap will gradually get hardened and turn into small red-brown transparent lumps. The frankincense essential oils are actually distilled from those lumpy resins, and currently mainly produced in Somalia, Yemen, Oman and other Middle East countries.
The uses of frankincense can be traced back to 3500 years ago. The priests in ancient Egypt used frankincense to worship gods and cure diseases. The ancient Egyptians also used it as a raw material of facial masks. Legend has it that frankincense was fascinated by Cleopatra, the most beautiful Queen of ancient Egypt, to keep her youth forever.
The Bible also recorded that the three Magi visited Jesus after his birth with three valuable treasure as presents: gold, frankincense and myrrh. Nowadays, many modern Arabian countries still burn frankincense as a gift to God during weddings, births of newborns, and religious rituals.
Frankincense also has many magical effects. According to the “Compendium of Materia Medica”, an ancient Chinese herbology volume written in the 16th century, frankincense and its scent can enter the heart to improve blood circulation and cure pain. As you discover, it plays an important role in many aspects: religion, skincare, fragrance and medical treatment.
