Frankincense is a resin that flows from the frankincense tree as an oily, gummy, creamy substance when the bark is slashed open. The tree originates in the Middle East. The liquid will bleed out and harden, which are called tears, and as it hardens it turns into the resin that is used during oil extraction. The essential oil is extracted by steam distillation of the dry resin.

Frankincense is often used in many Christian churches, and it is said that frankincense and myrrh were among the gifts given to baby Jesus by the Wise Men. Today the oil frankincense is a popular one in the perfume and aromatherapy world.  It is often used in facial products to help with dry and aging skin. The aroma of frankincense is a relaxing blend that is thought to help aid in headaches associated with tension as well as create an emotionally calming state.
