Olibanum (also known as Frankincense) is an aromatic resin obtained from trees of the genus Boswellia, particularly Boswellia sacra, B. carteri, B. thurifera, B. frereana, and B. bhaw-dajiana. Olibanum is usually burnt as incense.[1]

Olibanum has some magical properties, and 2 drachms of it are a component of Belch Powder.[2][3]
