The essential oils of Boswellia serrata Roxb. ex Colebr. oleo-gum-resin collected from four different locations (samples A–D) were isolated by hydrodistillation and analysed by means of GC and GC–MS. Thirty-five components were identified, comprising 82%, 91%, 77% and 82% of samples A, B, C and D, respectively. α -Thujene was one of the major constituents in all samples, whereas α -pinene was recorded in only one sample. All the oils were dominated by monoterpene hydrocarbons.
