Boswellia is a type of shrub-tree whose resin can be culled via small incisions made directly into the tree trunk. The whitish and fragrant resin turns an orangey colour as it hardens. It is from this resin that the essential oil is derived by means of steam distillation. Frankincense essential oil is used in aromatherapy as nerve calming and to help relieve cold and cough symptoms.
