Oliban definitions

Webster's 1828 Dictionary

OL'IBAN,
OLIBA'NUM, n. [The word signifies then frankincense, and it is so named from its whiteness.]
A gum-resin consisting of tears or drops, of a yellow transparent color and disagreeable smell. It is brought from Turkey and the East Indies. It is not, as Linne supposed, produced by the Juniperus Lycia, but from a different tree growing in Arabia and Hindoostan. In Arabia, luban is applied to benzoin, which is generally used for incense, and oliban is called condur, whence Gr. In medicine, it is used in fumigations as a resolvent.
Thompson says olibanum is produced by different trees and in different countries.

Webster's 1913 Dictionary

Oliban Ol"i*ban, n. (Chem.) See Olibanum.
