Olibanum, (luban), also known as Frankincense is tapped from the scraggy but hardy Boswellia Papyrifera tree by slashing the bark, which is called striping, and allowing the exuded resin to bleed out and harden.
These hardened resins are called tears with greenish to yellow color solid in the form of irregular nodules which on pressing form a slightly plastic mass.




Sudan and Ethiopia produce the most widely traded olibanum, and in 1987 this was reckoned to amount to some 2,000 tons. More recent estimates are not available although production is believed to have declined as a result of severe droughts in the region and some loss of demand
Most Indian olibanum is used domestically for making incense sticks. Volumes of exports have been erratic in recent years but averaged about 90 tons pa for the six years 1987/88-1992/93.
