General Data

Product Details


It’s a gum resin which is obtained from thorny plants about two meters high from the Burseraceae family, which has several species. It is a small and branched shrub, its leaves are composed of 7-15 leaflets. The leaflets are toothed and the whole plant is covered with cotton hairs. With the slit they create in the trunk of the frankincense-producing shrub, a white color latex comes out of it, which gradually hardens in the presence of air. This gum is sold in the market in small pieces or in the size of a chestnut. The gum is dry with a bitter taste, slightly astringent and slightly aromatic.
