Frankincense

Frankincense has been used for literally thousands of years. From beauty products to embalming,  to healing of skin. Not to mention it also being used to cleanse the air of sickness and disease. Together with myrrh the aroma could be used to cover the smell of death and so was used in burying practices that date back as far as the Egyptians .
