ORIGIN:- INDIA

Religious uses- In Egypt, Greece, and Rome it was burned in offering to various dieties, and it was an essential component of the incense burned in both Israelite temples in Jerusalem. After the rise of the Christian church its popularity dropped off until the Catholic and Orthodox churches became more institutionalised. To this day it is still used in their services. Numerous ancient texts including the Old Testament make frequent mention of frankincense in a religious context.

In addition to its status as an offering to various dieties, it was also burned in memory of the recently dead, partly because of its religious significance, and partly to mask the odor of the dead bodies. Historical accounts mention that, upon the death of his favorite concubine, Nero burned an entire year’s harvest of frankincense, entirely disrupting the frankincense trade until the following harvest season.
