Salalah, Oman Part II

Salalah is world-famous for one tree, the Frankincense Tree having an aromatic resin sap used in incense, perfume…  I tried frankincense at home by placing a 1/4″ piece atop a burning charcoal briquette which then melts the resin sending out a plume of smoke filling the house.  Scent was good, smoke was too much.  Need to back off on the size.

The resin in comes in various colors, purples, yellows, browns … with varying aromas.
