Frankincense Tears

Expand Product Info ▼

Frankincense is the aromatic resin from the Boswellia tree. The tree is scraggly yet hardy rumored to grow out of solid rock. To extract frankincense, the bark is slit and the sap seeps out, drying into hardened “tears”. The name is thought to come from “incense of Franks”. Reintroduced to Europe by the Frankish crusaders. Another theory about the name is that “frank” may mean “of high quality”.

The "wise men from the East" who visited the child Jesus brought frankincense with them. - Matthew 2:11

Frankincense is used in perfumery and aromatherapy. It does not have a culinary use, but we carry it for those who use it as an incense or as a symbolic gift during the holiday season.
