More info

Boswellia Sacra or Frankincense Tree is a tree of the family Burseraceae.
He is from Yemen and Somalia.
Boswellia sacra is a small deciduous tree, which reaches a height of 2 to 4 meters, with one or more trunks.
Frankincense tree seeds are yellow and angular.

Its bark has the texture of paper and can be removed easily.
Its small yellowish-white flowers are grouped in axillary clusters composed of five petals.
The fruit is a capsule about 1 cm long.
The sap of the Boswellia sacra is extracted to make incense, or its name is Frankincense tree.
We also use white sage or camphor as natural incense.

Trees start producing resin when they are about 6 to 7 years old.
The resin is extracted from Boswellia sacra by making a small deep incision on the trunk or branches of the tree or removing some of the bark.
The fragrant resin resembles a milky substance that coagulates on contact with the air.

Recent studies have indicated that incense tree populations are declining due to overexploitation.
