Frankincense, also known as olibanum, is renowned for its aromatic properties in perfumery and has been used for millennia for various purposes. Here are some of its key properties:

  1. Aromatic Profile: Frankincense has a rich, woody, and slightly spicy aroma with hints of citrus and sweetness. Its complex fragrance makes it a popular choice as a base note in perfumes, providing depth and longevity to fragrance compositions.
  2. Fixative Properties: In perfumery, a fixative is an ingredient that helps to stabilize and prolong the scent of a fragrance. Frankincense resin contains compounds that act as natural fixatives, making it valuable for enhancing the longevity of perfumes.
  3. Spiritual and Therapeutic Uses: Frankincense has a long history of use in spiritual and religious ceremonies due to its perceived purifying and grounding properties. It has also been used in traditional medicine for its purported therapeutic benefits, such as promoting relaxation, relieving stress, and supporting respiratory health.
  4. Antimicrobial Properties: Frankincense resin contains compounds with antimicrobial properties, which may help in preserving perfumes naturally and also contribute to its historical use as a fumigant to purify the air.
  5. Symbolic Significance: Beyond its physical properties, frankincense holds symbolic significance in various cultures and religions. It has been associated with offerings to gods, purification rituals, and spiritual enlightenment.

Overall, frankincense is valued not only for its pleasant aroma but also for its multifaceted properties that contribute to perfumery and its historical and cultural significance.

    This makes you feel like a walking jostick- very relaxing and mellow scent. Had loads of compliments on it. If you are a bit of a hippie- this is a fantastic scent!
