Boswellia or Frankincense Serrata, is likely one of the most well-known and well-used types of Frankincense in the world. Also called Indian Olibanum and Salai in India, its traditional medicinal uses are well recorded.
Used extensively for hundreds of years in the Indian healing tradition of Ayurveda, Boswellia Serrata is considered a NSAID (or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug), causing little to no side effects or irritation compared to steroidal drugs. It is used to treat arthritis, Osteoarthritis, inflammation of joints, bronchial asthma and recently has shown promise treating ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, tumours and to cause apoptosis in cancer cells. Boswellia Serrata is also used in Ayurveda to treat diseases of the mouth, chronic skin lesions and ulcers, wounds, piles, diarrhoea, jaundice and other hepatic disorders.
Many of the therapeutic properties are attributed to its Boswellic acid content, compounds it shares with Frankincense Papyrifera from Ethiopia and Frankincense Sacra/Carterii from Oman and Somalia.
Growing from India up through the Punjab and into Pakistan, Frankincense Serrata is used extensively as an incense and incense ingredient in local rituals and ceremonies. It's distilled essential oil has a warm amber-like spicy fragrance that acts as a heart to base note in perfume blends.
Frankincense Serrata is also used in traditional Chinese medicine. Extracts and capsules of B. Serrata are widely available on the market and commonly found on health food store shelves.

As most types of Frankincense, when burned as incense, it helps cleanse a space and create a sense of sacredness. Frankincense is ruled by the Sun from an astrological point of view, is calming to mind and heart, helps raise one's spirits, and is said to generate heightened feelings of spirituality and well-being.
. I am happy to finally add Frankincense Serrata oleoresin and essential oil to my shop collection of Boswellias, and hope you find it as lovely a resin as I do.
