I can't recall where I heard it, but the essence of it was that in the "ancient times" - or maybe not so long ago - the incense used in churches, temples, etc., was a very definite composition of some 3 or 4 ingredients that together produced a very beneficial health effect.

But this recipe has become forgotten. At least for the most of us.

The recipe isn't lost Bob. You 'll find it in leviticus. This wasn t just a drip or two of oil on the head of priest or king . The person had oil poored until it drip on the floor from their clothing.

Trees give sap which hardens to a resin. Frankincense is tree resin. I have been collecting fir tree sap resin for incense. Here is a picture of my latest haul:

Here is an example of some final processing of the tree sap into nice pellets of incense. -me I burn it as I find it and break it into bits with my fingers to burn pieces.

Interesting video. Thanks, the encenser at the top reminded me of catholic priest during funeral mass smoking hte whole place. I think they used that to purifie the air during the pleague era and kept on doing it as tradition ,
