Frankincense Tree

Frankincense is produced by purifying the dried sap of the frankincense tree. This particular tree is growing wild in the wadis of the Dhofar region of eastern Oman. Historical sources report that the Francincense trade originated in the Hadramawt and Dhofar regions. Some sources report that the Wise Men obtained the Frankincense and other gifts they offered to Jesus in a special cave known as the Cave of Treasures.
