For centuries, it was considered sacred by many religions... both for its healing properties and traditional importance in many religious rituals.

Also known as frankincense, boswellia produces a sap containing anti-inflammatory and antiseptic compounds.

Taken in pill form, an extract from the plant can significantly reduce pain and improve mood.
