Elemi Essential Oil

Part of plant: Resin
Chemical Componants: limonene, α-phellandrene, elemol sabinene, p-cymene
Aroma Character: green-woody, peppery
Closely related to the trees that gives us Frankincense and Myrrh, Elemi exudes an exotic, fragrant resin when its leaves are sprouting. This yellow resin, similar to Frankincense and Muhuhu, with a strong woody scent, solidifies when it comes into contact with the air.
Elemi can be best described by comparing it to a dill pickle with citrus notes. It is surprisingly fresh and clean though and not as tarte as one would expect.
Elemi can give users a feeling of peace, be effective on wounds and cuts, heavy perspiration, and in the reduction of mucous.
