Indian Frankincense Resin



Frankincense and the oil produced from it have been known for their healing powers and their ability to improve communication with the Middle East’s creator for thousands of years before making a gift to Christ by the Magi. There are over 52 references to it in the Bible. Egyptian records show many references to it, including its use in cosmetics, perfumes, and as an embalming agent. The Chinese used it as part of a treatment for leprosy. Grown predominantly on the Somali coast and parts of the Arabian Peninsula, the resin is obtained by making deep cuts in the tree’s trunk lengthwise. Below this incision, a narrow strip of bark is peeled off, allowing the sap to run out, and as it touches air, it begins to harden. It takes approximately three months to harden into the yellow “tears” used to see will be sold at the market. The sap is gathered from May until the rain showers start in September.
