Boswellia Serrata is the botanical name given to the tree that produces the resin known to the ancient Egyptians as sanatjr. It was first imported from Syria and Punt, with Pharaohs Hatsheput, Thutmose III, Amenhotep II and Ramses III attempting to grow trees to provide a domestic supply. Sanatjr was utilized in cosmetics, medicine, and ritual censing. Burned as incense in purification rituals, it was also burned in the morning temple rites.

Further scientific study found the active ingredient incensole acetate has a neurological effect on the hippocampus, and can effectively treat depressive disorders.
