Oman is uniquely suited for the growing of frankincense trees, which are extremely temperamental, and grow in only a few spots around the world. On the country’s southern coast, known as the frankincense coast, receives monsoon rains in the summer and has dry, desert conditions the rest of the year. The forbidding environment is uniquely suited to Boswellia sacra, along with Yemen and Somalia. But it is Omani frankincense that is the most valuable. It is used in perfumes, burned as incense, sold in markets across Oman, and even ingested for a host of purposes.
