Incense or frankincense is the aromatic resins of shrubs or trees (over 20 species) belonging to the Boswellia genus. These resins or gums are extracted by cutting the trunks, and the essential oil is obtained by steam distilling these gums. In the days of Antiquity, incense was considered as valuable as gold. It has been used in sacred rituals and ceremonies for thousands of years for its spiritual properties and benefits.
