Frankincense has been used in perfumes & cosmetics for thousands of years. Today it is used as a fragrance component in soaps, cosmetics, perfumes, and incense.
Frankincense has been treasured for centuries and was burnt as the original incense to bring good health. It was used by many cultures to treat almost all known ailments. It is botanically related to the tree that the essential oil myrrh is taken from.
The name for this resin likely comes from incense of Franks since it was reintroduced to Europe by Frankish Crusaders. Although it is better known as Frankincense to westerners the resin is also known as olibanum, which is derived from the Arabic al-lubán (the milk) a reference to the milky sap tapped from the Boswellia tree. Some have also postulated that the name comes from the Arabic term for Oil of Lebanon since Lebanon was the place where the resin was sold and traded with Europeans. Compare with Exodus 30 : 34, where it is clearly named Levona, meaning both white and is a root word meaning Lebanon in Hebrew. This might imply that Neglecta resin and other unique Frankincense resins were traded in Israel which is located on its borders. Israel grew and produced both Sacra and Rivae
The lost city of Ubar, sometimes identified with Irem in what is now Oman, is believed to have been a center of this Frankincense trade along the recently rediscovered Incense Road which was dominant during the middle ages after the destruction of the Holy Temple in Israel in 70 CE. Ubar was rediscovered in the early 1990s and is now under archaeological excavation.
