    It is resin from a tree, and smells fragrant when burnt. Used as incense. You can buy it from shops which sell incense, burners, and candles, etc. Hippie places... basically. Not sure what correct name is for those stores.

    Its a gum resin from trees in Africa and middle east used for incense, ceremonies, embalming, perfume, etc. My favorite site for resins, herbs, etc (in a non hippie way) is mountainroseherbs.com but Im sure you could find it elsewhere, although likely to be of poorer quality.
