Known more commonly as frankincense oil, olibanum is derived from the resin of the frankincense or olibanum tree. While frankincense is the more popular name in the West, it is referred to as olibanum in Eastern regions such as India.
Olibanum oil is said to have many medicinal purposes and is purported to have astringent, antiseptic, carminative, sedating, and disinfectant properties. This makes olibanum popular for use in aromatherapy, perfumes, and skincare.
Due to its citrus notes, olibanum blends well with other citrus oils such as lime, orange, lemon, and bergamot. It also pairs well with lavender, myrrh, pine and sandalwood.
