Frankincense(Boswellia serrata) is from the French word 'Franc' meaning 'luxuriant' also translated as 'real incense'.
Also known as Olibanum, Frankincense was used by the ancient Egyptians as an offering to the gods and as a rejuvenating face mask. Given as a gift to the infant Jesus in the Christmas story with Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh.
Frankincense is a fragrance component in soaps, incense, and of course, cosmetics and perfumes. To release its scent, the frankincense is either burned or smoldered over hot coals. The smoke from burning frankincense is effective for driving away mosquitoes and other pests.
