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 processed into tear-like lumps; another batch must have been sitting in plastic barrels and had absorbed an unpleasant aroma. Some I could return to the sellers, and one shipment had to be returned to the earth with a thank you.

Used extensively for hundreds of years in the Indian healing tradition of Ayurveda, Frankincense Serrata is considered an NSAID (or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug), causing little to no side effects or irritation compared to steroidal drugs. I cannot mention the therapeutic properties of my raw materials here for legal reasons so I encourage you to explore and research the wealth of health benefits that studies worldwide have shared with us.
Many of the therapeutic properties are attributed to its Boswellic acid content, compounds it shares with 5 other species of Frankincense.
