Boswellia Serrata – Reviewed

Read Time2 Minute, 3 Second

Hi everyone, today I wanted to provide you with a review for another product I have found influential in controlling the pain and swelling of arthritis.

Pain relieving cream

I have used this product almost daily for 2 years now and have found it to be another excellent tool in combating pain and inflammation.

I do a lot of self-massage on the joint and have found this cream great to work with, it doesn’t instantly soak into the skin. It remains on the surface meaning you don’t have to use as much when massaging.

The cream has quite a strong menthol type smell that I personally quite like but I do appreciate that may not be to everyone’s taste.

You can experience a slight tingling sensation when applying the cream but it has never caused me any adverse effects. I have found it soothing and cooling and effective in reducing swelling, in turn reducing joint pain.

I usually use it in the morning and evening when massaging the joint.

This product at the minute averages 4.1 out of 5 from 115 reviews.


  • Clinically proven to reduce joint swelling.
  • Inexpensive when compared with other similar creams.
  • All natural ingredients.
  • Improves circulation.
  • Does not quickly absorb into the skin, meaning a little can go a long way when massaging.


  • Although it seems to have worked for the majority there is still some who have not found it useful.
  • It does claim to improve circulation, I do think that is maybe more down to the rubbing action when applying the cream.

The Verdict

As stated above this is not something that has worked for everyone, though we do not know how often these consumers used the cream. I do think regular continued use is the way to go, I do believe massaging the joint whilst you apply it can bring greater pain relief.

This product gets the thumbs up from me as it has become so important in my daily schedule. I will leave you to decide if it is for you, but I would personally say at the price it is buying one tub and using it daily to see if you get any benefit is worth a try.

I do believe it will help as it has done for the majority of customers, but if you are of the minority that gets no relief then you haven’t broken the bank to find out.

  1. Hey Andy, great objective review, i like the fact that you have used the product extensively before you reviewed it, and the details about smell and texture. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you for your comment Soga, I only feel comfortable promoting the things I have used extensively myself so I can give an honest opinion.

    1. Hi Andrew, I certainly have found a lot of benefit from it. I use it daily on my ankle and it really helps with swelling and therefore helps with pain.

  2. Hi Andy, I like the fact that you have given a mix of reviews and that not all of them are positive. For me all positive reviews is a bit of a turn off as it seems like the reviewer is trying to hide something or just make a sale. Also I noticed that the price listed by amazon is in Pounds, is this a European product and is it available in the U.S.?

    1. Hi Corey thanks for your comment. I am not sure that this brand of boswellia serrata cream is available to the U.S. but there are certainly other brands available.

  3. Hi Andy! This looks like a great product! What works for one does not always work for another, but it’s always worth a try to see if it works for YOU. I believe Boswellia Serrata is also used to make Frankincense essential oil, and I truly believe in the effectiveness of THAT. In fact, I really just believe in the power of plants! This is definitely something I would try out.

    1. Hi Christina thanks for your comment I agree completely! I to believe in the power of plants and yes boswellia serrata is the plant that produces Indian frankincense, used in essential oils.

  4. Getting old just plain sucks! Seems like every day there is a new ache or pain that we all have to deal with. I was kind of surprised to read how much you liked this. For some reason topical creams are a hard sell for me. But if you worked for you great! I need to look into this more. Thanks for the review!

    1. Hi Nathan thanks for commenting. Yes I was never one for creams either but I have been really pleased with this, it has worked better than voltarol or ibuprofen for me. Like I say in the post I think getting one tub is worth a try, if it doesn’t work for you there won’t be any need to declare bankruptcy haha.
      Thanks for reading!

  5. Hi Andy
    I really like your post. You have put all the pros and cons together for the product which is very convenient. The product seems to be effective as well for arthritis!
    Thanks for sharing!

  6. Oh Wow, this cream looks amazing as I have read the review. My parents have arthritis and they always look for a good pain relieve and relaxing solution and here it is. I will order it for sure, I looks amazing and I am sure it will work and it is not expensive as well

  7. Great review. I suffer from pain in my lumbar facet joint. I’ve had one injection so far and it has worked. I havent had any major pain in the last few months. However, for the occasional pain that comes up, this might be a great solution. As for the menthol-type smell, I feel like its working more when that smell and tingling come with a cream lol. Thanks for this!! Will definitely try.

    1. Hi Pat thanks for your comment. Glad to hear you got relief from the injection, I have had one in my ankle and it was of no benefit. Have you had a chiropractor examine you they may provide relief as well.

  8. Hi Andy
    You have produced a well balanced review. I like it. It sounds like this product may even be useful for sports related injuries as well. I also like the fact that it is natural.

    1. Hi Glenn thanks for your comment, I would say for most injuries it will be beneficial. When we suffer an injury the area becomes inflamed due to the immune system going into damage control. That is where the cream comes in as it is a natural powerful anti-inflammatory.

      Thanks for reading!
