Harrabi Frankincense from Nigeria - Boswellia dalzielii

The frankincense of the Boswellia dalzielii trees is relatively unknown, but it’s gaining attention thanks to the high content of boswellic acids. This variety is also coveted in the oil and perfume industries because it’s particularly high in essential oils.

Botanical name: Boswellia dalzielii

Place of harvest: Nigeria

Scent: intense aroma, lemony, minty, fresh

Detailed information

Boswellia dalzielii has so far flown under the radar, but we expect it to only increase in popularity. Studies by the University of Ulm found that Boswellia dalzielii contains the highest level of health-promoting boswellic acids; no other frankincense varieties match its potency.

This particular frankincense is infrequently harvested, with trees growing in Senegal, Nigeria and Burkina Faso. We primarily source from Nigeria as the harvest is most abundant there. However, we also have small quantities of dalzielii frankincense from Senegal and Burkina Faso in stock.
