The trunk of the Frankincense tree exudes a sticky substance called resin. This resin is made up of roughly 65% gum, 30% resin and 4% essential oil. It can be harvested once the resin has hardened into crystals.
Historically, Frankincense has been used making cosmetics such as perfumes for thousands of years. Today it remains a fragrance additive in soaps, incense, and of course, cosmetics and perfumes. Frankincense Granules can be burned to purify the air and to encourage a meditative state.
