The frankincense is also known as olibanum.
The tree that produces the precious resin is native to the Sultanate of Oman. To harvest the gum, we have to make an incision in the bark. The resin concretions are collected by dropping them into a container. On contact with air, the resin secretions harden and are collected a few weeks later which will then be distilled to obtain the oil. The process is possible on trees that are older than a decade. Pharaohs used oliban incense to fight off unpleasant odours. Perfumes also use this essential oil to fix perfumes. Frankincense is likewise mentioned in the Bible, but ist is more likely referring to the resin.
Yield: 8kg of oil = about 100 kgs of aerial parts
