Gum Olibanum is the dried, gummy exudation obtained from various species of Burseraceae trees. Also known as Frankincense, is an aromatic resin used in incense and perfumes. It is an exudate gum obtained from trees of the genus Boswellia in the family Burseraceae, particularly Boswellia sacra.

Gum Olibanum is available in small tears or lumps of white-yellowish or yellow-reddish color, with a light scent. It is available in different qualities from dust, siftings, pea-size to tears.

Olibanum is edible and is used in traditional medicines in Africa and Asia for digestion and healthy skin. For internal consumption, it is recommended that frankincense be translucent, with no black or brown impurities. It is often light yellow with a (very) slight greenish tint. It’s also chewed like gum, but it has a stickier consistency.

It grows in the region of South Kordofan, Darfur and Blue Nile states. It’s a forestry product by its nature; harvesting starts between September and October and usually is done by “tapping” the tree and thereby extracting the sap. The quality of the product is determined by color, aroma, size, and purity. A species of great Biblical significance.
