What is Frankincense?
Growing sturdy and unassuming amongst the arid, rocky landscape of the Middle East and North Africa, Boswellia serrata has been a treasured tree since ancient times. Beneath its bark lies a rich supply of milky-white resin, which seeps through incisions in the tree in drops like precious pearls. These drops are harvested and stored in specially made bamboo baskets, which encourages the resin to harden, creating the orange gum known as frankincense.
Frankincense has been a symbol of spiritual enlightenment and meditative worship for thousands of years. It has been used in religious ceremonies, as offerings to countless gods and higher powers, as kohl that was used as black eyeliner by ancient Egyptians and for its wellness properties that make it even more of a valuable commodity.

Frankincense oil is a popular ingredient in many facial creams and youth serums.
