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.
Hougari Frankincense is the highest grade of Frankincense available, second to none. The pieces are very large, and the aroma is simply amazing, changing from very clear lemon to lime in the greener pieces. The Hougari Superior is hand-picked Hougari pieces chosen for their size and color. This Hougari Frankincense comes directly from Oman, the birthplace of Frankincense.

I really wanted the superior, but it's seems never to be in stock. This is good to settle for. A dry lemon lime scent which varies in intensity fro piece to piece. Very fresh.

This has been the incense I enjoy the best. Even better then the larger pieces of the superior.

This is the best I've ever smelled. I have. Couple different houjary tears and these are by far the best

This is my favorite kind of frankincense, with not that strong aroma as superiour or royal hugari, and with a bit of citrus note.

I have tried many types of frankincense over the years and am crazy about the aroma. However, this is my absolute favorite. A little higher in price but well worth it.
