Boswellia serrata (frankincense) is a moderate-to-large branching tree (growing to a height of 12 feet) found in India, Northern Africa, and the Middle East. Strips of Boswellia bark are peeled away, yielding a gummy oleo-resin. Extracts of this gummy exudate have been traditionally used in the Ayurvedic system of medicine as an antiarthritic, astringent, stimulant, expectorant, and antiseptic.
- It is used cosmetically as a facial toner and to smooth wrinkles. In Ayurvedic medicine, boswellia is used to destroy toxins, as a rejuvenative, to cleanse the 'orifices of the head', to redirect the flow of vata downwards, to clear adhesions from the body.
- Boswellia is also used in the treatment of fibroids, cysts, painful periods with clots and pain caused by congestion.
- Boswellia serrata also acts as an alternative to NSAIDs (Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs)
