Product Abstract: Small tree grown in North Africa and Arabia. Frankincense is also known as Olibanum and is an aromatic gum resin obtained from deep incisions made into the trunk of the tree. The resin begins as a fragrant sticky milky-white liquid that flows from the trunk of the tree when cut. The dried tears are collected, and the resin is then distilled, producing the precious oil. The resin is known as olibanum, derived from the Arabic al-lubƒÅn or 'that which results from milking', referring to the milky sap. It is used as incense, and has been traded for 5,000 years. The oil is still highly prized today in the perfumery industry, and widely used in the manufacturing of skin-care products.
Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.
