Boswellia serrata Infusion- 50 mls
This is 50 ML of beautiful Boswellia serrata infusion. It was infused in FCO (fractionated coconut oil) for 60 days and I added Vitamin E to stabilize it.
Boswellia serrata is one of the most well-known and well used Frankincense in the world. It is called Indian Olibanum or Salai in India. It contains Boswelic acid and a high percentage of alpha-thujene which makes it anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory
. It is excellent for joint and muscle pain, a few drops on where it hurts is all you need.
A word of caution this resin may cause problems with those on blood thinners and also who have heart problems. It is suspected that this effect may be due to the presence of estragole, also known as methyl chavicol which is also in the essential oil. According to Essential oil Safety second edition Robert Tisserand/Rodney Young, P 553. "Estragole has an in vitro antiplatelet effect. This effect is compared to diluted aspirin solution" While there is no strong proof that this compound is the primary cause, I suggest caution and supervision when using this product if you are on this type of medicine or have heart problems. .
Resins may irritate the skin so please handle with care.
