Frankincense and Myrrh are two types of resins that have been used since ancient times for their medicinal, spiritual, and aromatic properties.

Frankincense, also known as olibanum, is derived from the Boswellia tree. The resin forms from the milky white sap of the tree which hardens into orange-brown ‘tears’ when exposed to air. It has a distinctive woody, earthy aroma with slight fruity notes. Frankincense is often used in incense and perfumes, and it’s also believed to have various health benefits.

Myrrh, on the other hand, comes from the Commiphora species of trees. The resin is typically a reddish-brown color and is collected from the tree’s sap which oozes out from cuts in the bark and then hardens. Myrrh has a warm, slightly bitter scent, and is often used in tandem with frankincense in religious rituals and traditional medicine.

Both frankincense and myrrh have a long history of use in spiritual practices, and they are notably mentioned in the Bible in the context of the gifts brought by the Three Wise Men to the newborn Jesus.
