Frankincense and Myrrh

Did you know frankincense and myrrh are resins harvested from trees in the Middle East? These aromatic products were extremely valuable in Biblical times and used for religious and medicinal purposes, including essential oils. Currently about 1000 tons of frankincense are produced each year, mostly in Somalia. Myrrh is twice as expensive as frankincense, and about 500 tons are produced annually.
