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.

Delightful, a little note of pine, a little note of lemon, a little bit sweet...
This is the I like most from the sampler.
This one, remember me a little bit to Hojari...

Sweet is definitely the word for this variety! It is the candy of frankincense.

I enjoy the Arabian Frankincense both on charcoal, usually placing some foil between it and the charcoal, as well as burning on the electric heater. A lovely scent, perhaps a bit of a citrus fragrance, which makes for a wonderfully invigorating welcome to the day.
