Frankincense (Boswellia sacra / Oleo-gum-resin), the main effective contents were alcohol-soluble resins is 78%, water-soluble gum 23% and volatile essential oil 7% respectively. The contents have anti- microbial effects, on moth flora. The target was to detect the anti-microbial effects on microbial contents of buccal/oral cavity which are the sources of infection. Selection was of 5 female persons aged (25-35yrs.), for the experiment under study as the usage of Frankincense chewing gum for… Expand
