Frankincense

Featured Plant of the Month
Frankincense

FRANKINCENSE has hard durable wood that is used for various purposes, the primary one is for incense. Gum is obtained by cutting a thin layer of bark away and collecting the resin. It hardens into the finest incense in the world. Its oil was used as a fumigant for animal sacrifices and as a perfume during Bible times. The frankincense plant has pink flowers with five petals and a yellow center.
