What Boswellia herb Is:

The next time Christmas rolls around, don't think frankincense and myrrh; think boswellia. Since the biblical birth of Christ, frankincense, myrrh, boswellia, and other resin-releasing desert shrubs of the ancient Holy Land have been confused with one another.

Today the wisest of botanists and chemists can't differentiate among the various members of the Burseraceae family (especially in the Boswellia and Commiphora genera), all now thought to be myrrh, even when the plants are in full bloom.

One botanical name of frankincense is B. thurifera; one botanical name of myrrh is B. commiphora. We'll probably never know precisely what resinous substances the three wise men toted across the desert to present to the Christ child (all of these plants bleed a sticky resin that was probably burned as incense), but someday we might learn the full medicinal secrets of these fragrant herbs.
