So, I've talked about my love for Frankenteen
and my adoration for Frankenstein
so I thought, what the heck...let's talk about Frankincense.
Mostly, because it's Christmas time and The Wise Men thought it was good enough to bring to Baby Jesus but I really didn't know what the heck it was.
It's up...dried tree sap.From a Boswellia tree. (Myrrh is dried sap too, woot!) They use it to make incense and some cultures use it for medicinal purposes--though I think if I get leprosy I'd rather take my chances with traditional Western medicine.
And now, you know what I know. Aren't you glad?
