Boswellia

The genus Boswellia is a genus of plants including many species of a modest size, up to a maximum height of 8 m. These woody plants are well known as they are used for the production of incense, moreover the extraction of their sap and the essential oils produced in Ayurvedic medicine, that are believed to have beneficial effects and are used for treatments against diabetes, fever, cardiovascular diseases and rheumatoid arthritis. This genus is particularly known for its Boswellia sacra, as it is thought to be the incense brought by the Three Kings to baby Jesus, which is why it is often used in religious rituals. Because of its pretty small size and low resistance to cold it is advisable to cultivate it indoors, where, with an adequate pruning, you can obtain a very beautiful bonsai.
