About this book

For the past 4,000 years, Boswellia, the source of frankincense, has played a role in the economic growth and technological advancement of the Arabian Peninsula. It was the source for a cure of many diseases and purified worship halls across the globe. It has been an ageless natural commodity equal to gold and treasured as a sacred gift from the Gods.

Cultivation of Boswellia is a guide to growing, cultivating, exhibiting and extracting the resin of these wondrous plants in an urban agriculture and for personal and commercial use. It gives the reader scientific compilation of original descriptions of the nineteen species in their natural habitats, their historical perspectives, a process for hybridization, uses for holistic medicine, and what the future holds for these magical species of the ancient world. It is a reference book for botanists, growers and collectors with specificity of detailed habitat information and over 200 colour photographs that compliment the text and illustrate the diversity of the genus.
