Frankincense (Beswellia Carterii or Boswellia sacra tree)

The name Frankincense is derived from the term “franc encens” which is French for “high quality incense.” “franc” means “pure” and “encens” comes from “to burn.” It was considered a “pure incense” and known to be the most desirable of the incenses. The aroma is woody, earthy and spicy.

Tear-shaped droplets

Frankincense is usually grown in the dry, mountainous regions of India, Africa and the Middle East. Frankincense essential oil is made from milky white sap that is secreted by the Frankincense tree. When the tree’s sap droplets dry and harden into tear-shapes on the tree, this process takes a few days. The dry droplets are scraped off of the tree to be made into an essential oil. The earliest known source is the country of Oman. They shipped the oil to regions like the Mediterranean, India and china for thousands of years.
