Olibanum is similar to Frankincense, but is usually differentiated from it by a distinct orange aroma, as opposed to the Frankincense's lemon aroma. Olibanum 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.
Olibanum is a bitter, strong smelling and warming herb with nervine, antiseptic, expectorant and decongestant properties. Olibanum 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.
