Incense is also called olibanum. The word olibanum comes from the Greek word libanos which means "fragrant resin."
It is a gum resin, an aromatic, syrupy substance derived from the Boswellia tree. Incense smells spicy, woody, resinous and balsamic. It can have hints of myrrh, conifers and pepper. You can also recognize the scent of frankincense of rituals in catholic churches.

Incense in ancient rituals

For centuries incense, in specific Frankincense essential oil, has been praised in religious rituals for its antiseptic and healing properties. Frankincense was even more precious than gold. Like myrrh, the history of frankincense goes back 4,000 years. The ancient Egyptians used it as component in kyphi, a blend of frankincense, myrrh, honey, wine, broom, saffron, coriander, roses and berries.
