Boswellia Black neglecta- from The Ogaden, a Somali region in Ethiopia
Boswellia neglecta contains alpha-pinene, alpha-thujene, sabinene, delta-3-carene, and limonene. It also contains small traces of boswellic acid.
It is warming and anti-inflammatory, so it conveys feelings of awe, spirituality, and contentment.
This unusual tree produces two different resins — black and white. The white is extremely rare. The trees generally produce more black and the white is only produced at certain times of the year. Boswellia neglecta, a gum-resin, seeps out of wounds and cuts made to the tree. As it dries over the injured area, it seals the tree’s wounds. When burned, the resin repels insects. It is used in perfume, in food, and in beverages as a flavoring. It has anti-inflammatory properties. This fragrant resin is also used as an incense during ceremonies.
The Boswellia neglecta tree cannot be tapped to increase its yield of this valuable resin. The resin simply falls off the tree, lands on the ground where it is scooped up by gatherers.
The sticky resin oozes out essential oil and gum when you break off a piece. Useful in perfume and incense, it smells wonderful. Its totally relaxing effect can send you drifting off into a beautiful sleep.
This one comes from Ethiopia. I have tried B. neglecta from Kenya but I like this one better.
This is one of the best resins for anxiety or stress after a long day. It also seems to open the lungs. I used it in a lotion and applied it topically to my client’s chest. He was in hospice with lung cancer. While the resin did not eliminate cancer, it did soften his lungs and helped him breathe much easier. I have used it on myself for a bad cough. It seemed to calm the cough and made me feel more comfortable.
I also sell it in granules/powder form for those who do not want to grind it down. You can get it here: Boswellia neglecta Powder/Gravel (robinsresinsplus.com)
My goal is to sell quality resins at an affordable price. Some of you know me as the Queen of Resins because of the knowledge I have from constantly studying these resins and the friendships I have created with those who sell and harvest these beautiful trees.
These resins are harvested by Fair Trade Standards only.
Resins may irritate the skin so please handle with care.
