Thanks for posting this link. The article was fascinating. I had no idea Frankincense and mastic gum were the same thing. Now I need to do a lot more research.

Thanks for sharing my article...there is so much information about Frankie out there...I had to wade through a lot!! The only place that I found the reference to frank/mastic being one in the same was in my Chinese Medicine Materia Medica (that's not to say that more info isn't available) there IS a lot of confusion around names of resins...particularly those that were referenced in the Bible. For example: Labdanum is Cistus (rock rose); Aloes is Sandalwood; Storax may refer to Liquidambar, Balsam storacis or sweet gum; and Onycha may be storax, benzoin or the mud flap on a snail...wacky.
