Incense Aroma: An intense and true Frankincense lemon aroma
Frankincense is similar to Olibanum, but is usually differentiated from it by a distinct lemon aroma, as opposed to the Olibanum's orange aroma. Frankincense is called for in many ancient and medieval recipes, and is the most commonly found ingredient in incense blends. The Kohl substance that ancient Egyptian women used to darken the area around the eyes with was made of charred Frankincense or Olibanum sometimes mixed with other resins and herbs.
Frankincense is a bitter, strong smelling and warming herb with nervine, antiseptic, expectorant and decongestant properties. Frankincense is stimulant, but seldom used now internally, though formerly was in great repute . Pliny mentions it as an antidote to hemlock. Avicenna (tenth century) recommends it for tumors, ulcers, vomiting, dysentery and fevers. In China it is used for leprosy.

I was somewhat underwhelmed considering the product description. Quite frankly, the intense citrus note is not there. This is above average, but just barely. I base this on two factors. The incense burns clean to a white ash and the aroma is consistent and does turn acrid at the end. That being said, the aroma is very soft and has trouble counterpointing high grade myrrh. So it is better experienced by itself. Better than average, but sadly, "not impressive" The price is price-point is also not in line with the quality. Perhaps a lack luster batch. It happens...
