|Frankincense (also termed as Olibanum) obtained from Boswellia trees, belonging to family Burseraceae, is an aromatic oleo gum resin traditionally used as a fumigant, a medicine, in aromatherapy and various cosmetic formulations in several countries. Its appearance is colorless-yellow liquid having a balsamic, citrusy and spicy odor. The commercial oil referred as frankincense is produced from this plant which has a spicy, woody and haunting smell.

The main components of Frankincense oil are α-pinene, α-thujene, β-pinene. Essential oils and chemical extracts prepared from oleo-gum-resin of Boswellia species, both possess anti-neoplastic activity, and also have been determined as potential anti-cancer expedients. Frankincense oil shows different pharmacological properties like Anti-bacterial, Anti-inflammatory, Anti-microbial, Hepatoprotective and Therapeutic properties.
