Frankincense – an ingredient of MyPlankton
At its peak, frankincense value rivaled and was traded for gold, the rarest silks, and the most precious of gems. Ironically, it
is but a milky-white resin produced by a scrubby, unlikely looking tree, genus Boswellia.
Frankincense is tapped by slashing the bark, which is called striping and allowing the exuded resin to bleed out and harden.
These hardened resins are called tears.
During ancient times, frankincense was considered more valuable than gold. It has been traded for at least 5000
years. Today, as in years past, frankincense, regardless of its origin is a valued commodity, its pure essential oil
selling for up to a dollar a drop on the streets. It is the “mother” of all essential oils.

• Abdominal tumors
