The ancient Balm of Gilead was the first ingredient of the incense of the Temple and the sole component of the Anointing oil during the Second Temple period.
According to ancient sources, the plant reached the Kingdom of Judah as a gift given by Queen of Sheba to King Solomon. Queen Cleopatra was also a fan of the finest perfume. The perfume favored by the kingdom was also used by the daughters of Jerusalem who used the perfume to drive the boys crazy.
