Boswellia serrata from India
Shallaki or Salai Guggal is the Boswellia species from India. The resin is yellow to orange and is very similar to the African varieties of Boswellia carterii, although it is usually darker and more opaque. Some authors suggest that this type of incense was widely preferred in the age of the Old Testament.
