Boswellia papyrifera- from Ethiopia
This is beautiful Boswellia papyrifera from Ethiopia.
Boswellia papyrifera is a species of flowering plant native to Ethiopia, Eritrea and Sudan. It has a lemony pine scent. The resin is semi-translucent like yellow tears.
Boswellia papyrifera can be distinguished from other types of Frankincense by the presence of large amounts of octyl acetate and octanol. It also has two other unusual and unique chemical markers — incensole and incensole acetate. Studies have shown that incensole acetate affects the central nervous system and has psychoactive properties.
Due to the fact that Boswellia papyrifera has psychoactive properties, many people burn it to relieve anxiety and stress. Burning the resin produces a calming effect.
Boswellia papyrifera contains Boswellic acid.
In addition to burning it as an incense, it can be made into lotions and salves or infused in a carrier oil.
