Stacte (Heb. nâtâf), the name of one of the sweet spices which composed the holy incense. See Ex. 30:34—the only passage of Scripture in which the word occurs. Some identify the nâtâf with the gum of the storax tree (Styrax officinale), but all that is positively known is that it signifies an odorous distillation from some plant.
