Product of Somalia
Frankincense is a tree resin, or gummy sap that oozes from the bark of trees of the genus Boswellia, particularly B. sacra (B. carterii, Hojary or Beeyo). Somalia accounts for most of the commercial production, but the resin is also harvested in other African countries such as Ethiopia and Sudan. The milky sap naturally exudes from the bark and hardens into clear yellow teardrop shaped lumps known as tears, but this can be forced by making incisions in the bark and tapping the resin.
