Trip to Salalah and a focus on Frankincense

At the end of the Khareef is a great time to visit Salalah. We visited the nice Land of Frankincense Museum and saw a Frankincense Flower being pollinated by an Apis Florea bee.

Unexpectedly I also saw that the Ministry of Tourism had used one of my images, a Frankincense burner, to promote Salalah.

If you are interested in learning more about Frankincense, Oman is the source of Boswellia Sacra and my book ‘The Land of Frankincense’ has over 180pages about this mystical product and the land it grows in.
