Frankincense and Myrrh


For centuries, traditional peoples across the Middle East, the Mediterranean, and the tropics have used resins from plants from the Burseraceae family—for illumination, rituals, fragrance, medicine, and even stimulating camel milk production. Douglas Daly, NYBG B. A. Krukoff Curator of Amazonian Botany, presents the colorful history of these remarkable plants. Examine a variety of products from far-off lands, discover how to really "burn" incense, and take home seeds to grow for the holidays.
