Description

Pure Boswellia Serrata Oleoresin now powdered for ease of use. Devoid of water-soluble gum, for herbalists, apothecaries, medicine and cosmetics makers.

In its natural form as an oleo-gum-resin, Frankincense will not blend homogeneously with oils and waxes.
However, when all water-soluble gum is removed, it dissolves easily in warm vegetable oils and waxes, becoming a perfect base for making Frankincense oils, salves and cremes.

Separated of its gum using water and no harsh solvents, this is a pure oleoresin composed mainly of pentacyclic and tetracyclic triterpenes including the alpha and beta Boswellic acids.

These triterpenes along with other valuable compounds are not naturally found in the essential oils of Frankincense, or the water-soluble gum portion. Too heavy to come over in hydro or steam distillation they are exclusively found in the resin.

The isolated oleoresin of Frankincense Serrata dissolves easily in the water bath with vegetable oils, waxes, and alcohol. This quality makes it perfect for use in medicated oils, salves, suppositories, cremes and liniments.

The Boswellic acids, including Acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid (AKBA) are considered the active compounds found in some types of Frankincense. In laboratory studies the Boswellic acids exhibit anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer activity. Many studies were performed and can be readily found online.

Frankincense has been used in Ayurvedic, Unani, and Traditional Chinese medicine for hundreds if not thousands of years. In Ayurveda, it is traditionally used to treat arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, respiratory and gastrointestinal irritations and inflammations. It is also a popular ingredient in beauty and skin care products often added to formulas for mature skin. In Islamic/Unani tradition it is thought to improve brain function,memory and used to address issues of fertility and libido.

This extract makes a clean burning fragrant incense material that can be used alone or powdered, (freeze it first), and mixed with other aromatics. Devoid of water-soluble gum, it melts completely and burns cleanly with no charring.

As a medicated oil it can be blended at a 1:3 to 1:10 ratio which yields approximately 3-10 ounces of medicated oil from a one-ounce package.

It has a beautiful texture in salves and cremes, feels lovely on the skin, and the fragrance profile of both resin and essential oil together is more complex than the essential oil of Frankincense. It has a sweet, slightly fruity, warm, woody, amber scent with spice highlights.

This resin can be used in moustache waxes and beard balms to add firmness, tenacity, (fragrance), and the effects of a day-long perm. For more information see my recipe.-https://apothecarysgarden.com/2014/06/25/a-moustache-wax-recipe-with-frankincense-resin/

    Item not as pictured. Skeptical this is even serrata extract. It's black, crumbly, pieces of fiber are mixed in with it (twigs?!), not uniform in composition, which is UNLIKE all other serrata extracts I've seen and used. I contacted the seller and Joanne gave me some excuse about lighting and age of batch, which is nonsense. I wanted what was pictured, not some mystery bag of black tar. I even sent an image. I wish I could upload the picture with this review. So now I am skeptical of the quality of all of their products; I ordered $100 worth of stuff too. Poor experience. Use another shop that actually sells what they picture.
