Frankincense is the hardened sap that runs from a tropical tree in the torchwood family that grows in Asia and the Middle East. The resin “bleeds” from the scored bark of trees that are 8 to 10 years of age and quickly hardens to form “tears.” It is highly fragrant and most commonly used in this form as incense.
Frankincense has been used since ancient times. It is mentioned in the Bible. Jews use frankincense as a ceremonial incense as an offering. In Egypt, frankincense was used to paint the eyelids of women. It was also used as a hair remover and perfume. Frankincense is used most commonly as an incense that provides vapor.
