Botanical Name: Canarium commune

Main Constituents:
Limonene: 58.74%

Plant Part: Resin

Origin: Philippines

Processing Method: Steam Distilled

Description / Color / Consistency: A thin, clear, colorless to pale yellow liquid.

Aromatic Summary / Note / Strength of Aroma: A middle note with a medium aroma, it can be best described by comparing it to a dill pickle with citrus notes. It is surprisingly fresh and clean, and not as tart as one would expect.

Blends With: Elemi Essential Oil blends well with Clary Sage, Frankincense, Rosemary, Myrrh and Lavender.

Product Abstract: Closely related to the trees that give us Frankincense and Myrrh, Elemi exudes an exotic, fragrant resin when its leaves are sprouting. This yellow resin, similar to Frankincense and Muhuhu, has a strong woody scent, which solidifies when it comes into contact with the air. Elemi is known locally as pili, and the gum is exported from the Philippines. It has been used as a substitute for Frankincense, which has been used throughout the civilized world since ancient times.

Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.

Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping), be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

I bought this for therapeutic uses. It is said that elemi is the "poor mans frankincense". The description of the scent is dead right - almost a dill pickle scent with citrus notes. What a strange aroma, unless you like dill pickles I suppose lol

Smells green and citrusy but it's so weak and I so wish it had a bit of a staying power.

It does smell like dill pickle with citrus undertones! Very unique! I bought it for the therapeutic value since it's so nutritive for the skin.

Another of the most under-rated oils....this intensely fresh essential oil is so useful! I find it wonderful in male/balancing blends as well as a peaceful tonic for women too. If you've never tried it, do......you won't be sorry.
