Frankincense originates from a small, scraggly, but hardy tree indigenous to the Middle East that is small with abundant pinnacle leaves with white or pale pink flowers. The resin begins as a fragrant, sticky, milky-white liquid that flows from the trunk of the tree when cut. The dried tears are collected and the resin is then distilled, producing the precious oil.
