About the plant
Frankincense comes from Boswellia trees. There are currently 23 known species of Boswellia. The tree is shrub-like, grows in extremely dry and inhospitable conditions, often seen on cliffs of limestone or volcanic rocks in arid valleys, often called a 'wadis' in Arabic. Boswellia sacra is known as the “sacred frankincense,” as this species was likely the kind of frankincense given to Jesus as it was traded extensively during classical times. The trees are found only in Oman and Yemen.
