Resins, elastics and balsams as remedies and incense

Incense and resins are among the oldest natural remedies of mankind and have a history going back thousands of years. These are true natural treasures which, given their preciousness, have shaped entire eras and cultures. However, the resins described in this book are still enjoying growing popularity today. The author presents more than 70 different plant exudates, both native and exotic, in this richly illustrated ethnobotanical book and explains their traditional applications as medicinal and incense products.
