Frankincense is a tree with small, needle-like leaves and fragrant white flowers. Frankincense trees are grown in desert or semi-desert regions throughout Africa, Yemen, India, Ethiopia and Somalia. The fragrance of the oil has been prized for centuries by providers of religious services and incense makers.
The use of frankincense oil has been around for centuries, some saying as far back as 2500 years ago. Used for its distinctive scent, it was used in Egyptian ceremonies to guide souls into the afterlife and since then has been known to reduce feelings of anger and irritability.
