$actCategory->oxcategories__oxlongdesc->value : Frankincense from OmanThe frankincense (Boswellia sacra) and myrrh which are mentioned in the Bible – gifts fit for a king! -- come from today's Oman and Yemen, and are the best quality in the world. What is it about this region? It has to do with the weather conditions. In the southernmost part of the Sultanate of Oman near the Yemeni border there is a small subtropical region centered around the city of Salalah, which is kept moist in the summer by fog, rather than rain. Here then, everything is lush and green, and ideal for growing coconuts, bananas and many other plants. It is hard to believe that just over the hills from this green enclave you drive a few dozen kilometers and find yourself deep in the desert.
