Boswellia is a botanical medicine recognised for its fast acting natural anti-inflammatory properties. Our frankincense is wild-harvested from Boswellia trees native to Somaliland and Somalia. Boswellia trees secrete resins which consist of essential oils, gum and terpenoids.
The wild-crafting or tapping of frankincense trees entails making deliberate incisions in the bark to allow a milky liquid to exude. This viscous oleo-gum resin then resinifies or hardens on exposure to air into tears or droplets which are easily detached. Boswellic acids, contained within the terpenoids, are the active constituents within Boswellia.
