Frankincense is a mixture of aromatic organic substances, which can be ignited and then gives off a pleasant scent. Frankincense also refers to the resin (olibanum) of the frankincense tree (Boswellia). The original meaning of the word frankincense is "we smoke" (smoke to consecrate). Incense has been used since at least 1700 BC, probably originally as an incense offering. The purpose of incense was to appease the gods. The fragrance and prayer rise with the smoke. A practical use of frankincense was to expel the smell of putrefaction. The blood and remains of the animals that Jews sacrificed were masked with the penetrating scent of frankincense. Incense was and is mainly used in churches in Europe. Although the smell of the sacrifices still had to be expelled among the Jews, incense could obscure the smell of the wealthy who were buried in the church. The expression rich stinker may therefore have its origin here. Also during funerals and pilgrimage places where people have had to come from far away, the use of the odor-obscuring incense does not seem like a coincidence. The resins and oils were unaffordable for ordinary people, because they had to be imported from outside Europe. Apart from that, there was no culture of use of frankincense outside the church. Since the 1960s, interest in Eastern cultures and religion has grown. In many countries such as China, India, Tibet and Japan, a lot of incense is used. In these countries, incense is just as common, as in the Western world, flowers in the house or the use of soap or perfume. The import and use of oriental incense also grew with interest.
