About Our Indian Frankincense CO2 Oil
Frankincense CO2 from India, Boswellia serrata, contains up to 85% monoterpenoids but also sesquiterpene alcohols and esters including incensole acetate. The content of boswellic acids is below 0.1%. Indian Frankincense has been used traditionally to treat inflammation of the bladder and joints, but also for irregular periods, nosebleeds and to improve elasticity of aging skin. Frankincense CO2 has been shown to be effective against Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and Proteus mirabilis as well as Candida albicans and Candida tropicalis. The fragrance is composed of a warm woody basenote, with lemony and camphoraceous notes. It has a slightly sweet, spicy and herbaceous character. Generally its therapeutic effects are comparable to those of Boswellia carterii.
