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.
