Boswellia dalziellii
Boswellia dalziellii from Nigeria
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.

We carry two grades:
  1. Grade #1 - Larger pieces
  2. Grade #2 - Smaller pieces

Botanical name: Boswellia dalziellii

Place of harvest: Nigeria

Scent: intense aroma, lemony, minty, fresh
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 Nigeria, Senegal and Burkina Faso. We primarily source from Nigeria as the harvest is most abundant there.

However, we also have smaller quantities of dalzielii frankincense from Senegal and Burkina Faso in stock.
