Elemi essential oil has a lemony, piney, and gentle musky aroma.
Before modern medicine, civilization relied heavily on the powers of nature to heal, restore and uplift. Elemi is a rare and precious essential oil that has been revered for centuries.
Native to Asia, Elemis are evergreen trees that produce fruits the size of plums with nuts inside. It is in the same family as Myrrh and Frankincense. The resin of the tree is put through a steam distillation process to capture the pale-yellow essential oil. The word elemi has been used at various times in history to denote various resins.
