As previous reviewer said, this is sticky... I'd say VERY sticky. It is extremely resinous. It isn't pure Frankincense only 50%. I've been in aromatherapy for over 25 years & this is the first time I've ever gotten a bottle so resinous (unless it sat for a while under a lit candle and one of the burning diffusers). Frankincense is one of my top 3 favorite essential oils. At first I was going to complain but then noticed it had a nice smokey scent to it that I liked. I think somewhere back in the beginning of doing aromatherapy I came across this scent and haven't run into it since. The bottle says it is a dilution of resin in 50% alcohol (ethanol) so, FYI, this is not your standard frankincense. I docked it one star because of the stickiness but I like the smell. I think it's best in my opinion to blend it with a standard frankincense and/or a carrier oil. Then you get the non stickiness but a nice slight Smokey scent.
