Frankincense history

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frankincense#Traditional_medicine

One of the essential oils I tested out was frankincense. The name sounds a bit peculiar, until I read later on that this was one of the 3 gifts the wise philosophers gave to Jesus Christ.

That would provide a lot of external verification for what “wise” meant back then. It would also explain why they called it an incense.
