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.
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.
