Organic Boswellia Serrata – also called olibanum or frankincense – is an aromatic resin obtained from tree with the same name. It has been used for thousands of years in traditional Ayurveda medicine. The resin is also widely used as an incense and in perfumes. There are numerous species and varieties of boswellia trees, each producing a slightly different type of resin. Differences in soil and climate create even more diversity of the resin, even within the same species. Boswellia serrata trees are also considered unusual for their ability to grow in environments so unforgiving that they sometimes seem to grow directly out of solid rock. The trees start producing resin when they are about 8 – 10 years old. Tapping is done 2 – 3 times a year with the final taps producing the best drops due to their higher contents of aromatic terpenes, sesquiterpenes and diterpenes.
