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 African Frankincense powder is a common Frankincense at an economical price.  For information on the difference between Frankincense and Olibanum please see our Frankincense v.s. Olibanum page.

  1. It all starts with Frankincense 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Sep 2019

    A very nice Frankincense, burns clean all the way through. If you are new to incense, this is where you start.

    I'm a big fan of the higher-end Frankincense, but this stuff does the trick for rituals.

    I find Frankincense to be possibly the most important for Occult purposes.
