While olibanum was the name used by ancient Romans, the name frankincense dates to tenth-century French, meaning “high-quality incense.” Commonly burned in temples, frankincense was believed to deepen the spiritual experience and open the way to enlightenment. Egyptians offered it to the gods while the Romans used it for both religious and secular ceremonies. Since ancient times it has been used in medicines and cosmetics. Originating in the Red Sea region, this small, shrubby tree has dense foliage and white or pale pink flowers.
