Frankincense is an ancient oil that has been used by the ancient Egyptians and other civilizations for over 4,000 years. It has been valued for both spiritual and health uses. You may be familiar with its scent because of its use during religious celebrations.
Frankincense oil is extracted from the Olibanum tree, which originates in the Middle East. Incisions are made in the tree trunk and the bark is peeled off and left out in the air. Over time, a juice leaks out of the strips of bark and solidifies on contact with the air. This forms a gum resin. The oil is extracted through steam distillation.
Frankincense has a scent that has been described as fresh, woody and spicy. It blends well with lemon, orange and other citrus oils.
