@BeKind ,
I am not familiar with the Baca bush, but I remember a reference to the bakha bush in Psalms, referenced to the Valley of Baca and the sap/plant resin mastic. When I did some research, I found it was called Pistacia lentiscus which grows throughout the Mediterranean and also Iran and Iraq and the Canary Islands. Hope this helps.

I love the smell of this stuff; don't grow the tree but I buy the capsules.
