Description: The essential oil of frankincense contains more than 200 individual natural chemicals, giving the fragrance a very complex bouquet. There is considerable variation in the proportion of these components depending on the micro-climate where the trees grow, the season at which the resin is harvested, and a number of other factors.

In Ayurvedic medicine, the gummy exudate from boswellia is referred to as guggals, and are recommended for a variety of conditions, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, diarrhea, dysentery, pulmonary disease, and ringworm.

Nutritionally, an active constituent in Boswellia Serrata is the gum oleoresin, which consists of essential oils, gum, and terpenoids. The terpenoid part contains boswellic acids. Studies have shown that boswellic acids have an anti-inflammatory action and can be used to relieve inflammatory conditions. Boswellia Serrata has been helpful with the treatment of ulcerative colitis, osteoarthritis, bursitis, rheumatoid arthritis, and asthma.
