The bark is cut and the sap which begins to eventually flow once exposed to air becomes hard and brittle, forming bitter tasting golden beads called tears. Frankincense tears can be ground into a powder or used in their granular form. The tears are often smoldered on charcoal as an incense or its powder form can be sprinkled on charcoal discs or candles.

The powdered form can be added to soaps and other toiletries to obtain the healing benefits of frankincense. The aroma of frankincense is warm, woody, sweet and spicy. Frankincense has been used since ancient times in religious ceremonies, is still used in many churches today and was one of the three gifts from the Magi to the infant Jesus.
