Caring for Indian Olibanum

    The trees start producing resin when they are about eight to 10 years old.[6] Tapping is done two to three times a year with the final taps producing the best tears due to their higher aromatic terpene, sesquiterpene and diterpene content.

Typical uses of Indian Olibanum

Special features: Olibanum is characterised by a balsamic-spicy, slightly lemon, fragrance of incense, with a conifer-like undertone. It is used in the perfume, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries.

Ornamental use: The plant is used for ornamental purpose.

Medicinal use:

  • Extracts of Indian Olibanum have been clinically studied for osteoarthritis and joint function, particularly for osteoarthritis of the knee.
  • A Boswellia extract marketed under the name Wokvel has undergone human efficacy, comparative, pharmacokinetic studies.
  • Indian Olibanum is used in the manufacture of the supposed anti-wrinkle agent "Boswelox", which has been criticised as being ineffective.
