Description

This is an extremely fresh & Fragrant 2021 harvest of Indian Boswellia Serrata. It is a mix of silver, amber and green tears. The fragrance is stunning and fills the house! It has a glorious spicy-sweet smell that immediately distinguishes it from all other types of Frankincense.

We have not had Frankincense Serrata resin in the shop for over a year because the only grades I could find were of a quality I couldn’t sell in the shop. Some looked terrible and were made from low-grade material that had been processed into tear-like lumps, another batch had must have been sitting in plastic barrels and had absorbed an unpleasant aroma. Some I was able to return to the sellers and one shipment had to be returned to the earth with a thank you.

Boswellia or Frankincense Serrata is likely one of the most well-known and most-used types of Frankincense in the world. Also called Indian Olibanum and Salai in India, its traditional medicinal uses are well recorded.

Used extensively for hundreds of years in the Indian healing tradition of Ayurveda, Boswellia Serrata is considered an NSAID (or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug), causing little to no side effects or irritation compared to steroidal drugs. It is used traditionally to treat arthritis, osteoarthritis, inflammation of joints, bronchial asthma and recently has shown promise treating ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, tumours and causing apoptosis in cancer cells. Boswellia Serrata is also used in Ayurveda to treat diseases of the mouth, chronic skin lesions and ulcers, wounds, piles, diarrhea, jaundice and other hepatic disorders.

Many of the therapeutic properties are attributed to its Boswellic acid content, compounds it shares with Frankincense Papyrifera from Ethiopia and Frankincense Sacra/Carterii from Oman and Somalia.

Growing from India up through Punjab and into Pakistan, Frankincense Serrata is used extensively as an incense and incense ingredient in local rituals and ceremonies. It’s distilled essential oil has a warm amber-like spicy fragrance that acts as a heart-to-base note in perfume blends.

Frankincense Serrata is also used in traditional Chinese medicine. Extracts and capsules of B. Serrata are widely available on the market and commonly found on health food store shelves.

Like most types of Frankincense, when burned as incense, it helps cleanse a space and create a sense of sacredness. Frankincense is ruled by the Sun from an astrological point of view, is calming to mind and heart, helps raise one’s spirits, and is said to generate heightened feelings of spirituality and well-being.
Excellent for preparing tea or powder and other products, it does not lend itself to chewing as pleasantly as Frankincense Sacra, Royal Green Hojari or Frankincense Carterii

For information on using Frankincense Serrata for incense, cosmetics and medicine, please see my blogs at apothecarysgarden.com.

    I have been buying wonderful products from this store for a long time. I always trust Dan. Today I received this incense with an interesting aroma. The only thing that bothers me is the picture. my frankincense doesn't look as green as in Dan's picture.

    Holidays shipping can never be perfect doesn't mean it wasn't shipped fast by seller. From my photo this one looks amber in the bag but hold it in the light and that green really shines through. My free sample they where nice enough to send happens to be something I haven't tried yet and that put a smile on my face. I have only tried one peace so far but the house smells amazing right now. With the selection and quality of the product I would order from here again.

    My setup in photo includes cheap (nontoxic) lantern by JHY Design, cheap electric lighter (Walmart.com,) metal candle snuffer & the most A-MAZING beeswax tea lights from Serenibee Candle (www.serenibeecandle.com). Tea light burner & snuffer from Etsy's Temple Living.

    I got accessories to burn the WORLD'S BEST frankincense, myrrh, benzoin from Apothicary's Garden! Burning on a tea light is a million times better than on toxic coal discs! No smoke, soot, or waste! Be sure & trim wicks down each time you light & open the lantern door 4 a slow, rich burn.

    I love this tea light burner with easy to clean screen. Just pop it upside down & scrape the burned bits with metal. Next best thing to a $400 electric burner. Great 4 PTSD, anxiety, insomnia & meditation. Crush resin 2 burn.

    Excellent customer service for exchanges/returns!

    The frankincense sarrata, India resin looks nice, is very clean and burns nicely. However, I am not a fan of the scent – although I'm sure it smells great to those that appreciate this particular resin species. I gave it 5 stars on the basis of apparent quality, not on the basis that I personally do not care for the sarrata variety.

    I don’t know much about resin incense, but I was curious about it and so I bought a “sampler pack” off the mega seller that begins with “A”.

    All five of the items from that sampler smelled almost exactly the same when burned/vaporized, leading me to believe I bought a crappy product, probably counterfeit “resin incense”.

    A little research led me to this shop and I ordered a few items. What a difference! Clearly the product is of great quality and I could not be more pleased with my purchase, and will purchase again.
