Frankincense (olibanum) is an aromatic resin obtained from trees of the genus Boswellia and has been used in traditional medicine in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal and anticancer activities (Beheshti and Karimi, 2016).
It belongs to the genus Boswellia, very widespread in many African countries, particularly in Burkina Faso, Togo, Cameroon, Benin, Ghana, Ivory Coast, and Nigeria [19,20].
The report warned that the deforestation has led to dwindling acreages allocated to growing frankincense or olibanum (aromatic resin used in incense and perfumes, obtained from trees of the genus Boswellia) and to lower volumes of crops of bananas, cotton, rice, mangoes, and citrus.
