Land of Frankincense

By Linda Tancs

Frankincense is to Oman what peanut butter is to jelly. It’s just hard to imagine one without the other. Indeed, frankincense is so closely associated with the history of Oman that the Dhofar region is recognized by UNESCO as the Land of Frankincense. In Wadi Dawkah (the incense forest), in particular, trees have been harvested for frankincense from ancient times to the present day. You can learn more about the historical and cultural importance of frankincense at the Museum of the Land of Frankincense in Salalah.
