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.

This Frankincense Select is a true Frankincense at an economical price.  For information on the difference between Frankincense and Olibanum please see our Frankincense v.s. Olibanum page.

  1. I´m agreed with furniture polish 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Jan 2015

    From the sampler too.
    I don´t like it. Two stars because I really prefer Arabian incenses much more.

  2. Definitely Lemon 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Sep 2014

    If you're looking for strong lemon notes, this is definitely the one to pick. I got this incense as part of the sampler pack. Burns very well, but the lemon can be so powerful it's like furniture polish. Makes a goodly amount of smoke. Four stars not for the quality of the product, which is excellent, but because I prefer the Arabian incenses more.
