Also known as "frankincense" or "true incense," the frankincense is considered by many to be the "original incense," since it was the first resin to be used by mankind for the production of incense and smoke.
The Frankincense is present in the history of diverse civilizations, always related to sacred rituals of spirituality and meditation. Its resin is obtained from some plants of the genus Boswelia, existing in both Africa and Asia.
By the time of the Hebrews, the Frankincense, along with gold and myrrh, was one of the gifts of the three Magi offered to the baby Jesus.
But it was not only the Jews who considered it sacred. Roman emperors also used it in a series of rituals and ceremonies, such as Nero, who would have used him in burning rituals for a year followed after the funeral of his wife, Poppaea. Indian, Persian, Arabian, Chinese and other peoples also made and still make use of the herb, known for its soft and balsamic fragrance, with citrus and camphor touches and an odor that remains in the air for quite a while.
