Frankincense and Myrrh Resins
Regular price £16.75
Frankincense or olibanum is an aromatic resin obtained from trees of the genus Boswellia, Boswellia Carteri while myrrh is a gummy resin from the Commiphora shrub. Both Boswellia and Myrrh trees in Somalia grow in the wild. Deliberate wounds are made on the barks of the tree allowing the milky or yellow coloured liquid to ooze. The liquids harden on exposure to air resulting in the resins. Frankincense and myrrh have medicinal properties and have many uses.
