Antimicrobials from natural sources have gained immense importance in recent times to combat the global challenge of antibiotic resistance. Essential oils are implicated in antimicrobial action against several species. Here, we have screened nine commercially available essential oils for their antimicrobial activity against organisms associated with skin, scalp and nail infections mainly Propionibacterium acnes, Malassezia spp., Candida albicans and Trichophyton spp. Among nine essential oils… Expand

Boswellic acids/Boswelliaserrata extract as a potential COVID-19 therapeutic agent in the elderly
TLDR
A small to moderate dose B. serrata extract may be useful in the enhancing adaptive immune response in mild to moderate symptoms of COVID-19, however, large doses of BA may be beneficial in suppressing uncontrolled activation of the innate immune response. Expand
The Essential Oils of the Burseraceae
TLDR
The oils reviewed are a combination of leaf, stem, fruit, bark, and wood oils and extracts with many, particularly the frankincense oils, originating from the oleoresin, containing monoterpene hydrocarbons, some oxygenated monoterpenoids, and sesquiterpene Hydrocarbons. Expand
Compositional analysis of the essential oil of Boswellia dalzielii frankincense from West Africa reveals two major chemotypes.
TLDR
The chemical compositions of the essential oil hydrodistilled from 21 samples of oleoresin taken directly from B. dalzielii trees in northern Nigeria, revealed two major chemotypes, one dominated by α-pinene and one much rarer chemotype rich in myrcene. Expand
Chemical Composition of the Oleogum Resin Essential Oils of Boswellia dalzielii from Burkina Faso
TLDR
The oleogum resin essential oil compositions of B. dalzielii, rich in α-pinene, are comparable in composition to other frankincense essential oils, including B. sacra, B. carteri, and B. frereana. Expand
