Frankincense has been turning heads since the Antiquity, it was burnt on a grand scale for sacred rituals from Arabia to Mesopotamia to Ancient Rome and much beyond.

It extravagant price turned the ancient world crazy, and many empires tried to reach the source of the holy plant (Pharaonic Egypt, Romans, ...) without success, so arduous was the road, and so misleading were the information, designed to protect the best kept secret of Arabia by creating fear with mythological dangers,  blurring the actual geography with invented unreachable destinations and so on.

We  know now that the precious resin they were after (B. sacra & B. carterii) grows in Oman, Yemen and in the horn of Africa, in the famous region of the antique kingdom of Punt (while some other varieties grows elsewhere).

Slow cycle, low-pressure artisan distillation of Boswellia carterii from Somaliland
