Known in its native land as Indian frankincense, Boswellia (boswellia serrata) has been used for thousands of years in India and the Arabian Peninsula for promoting joint comfort. Obtained by pulling the bark away from the boswellia tree, the secreted resin hardens into “tears” that are valued for herbal properties.

Boswellia serrata is closely related to Boswellia sacra, the frankincense of Bible lore. Historically, Boswellia sacra was primarily used for incense and aromatherapy, but it was also revered for its herbal properties.
