Method of Extraction: Steam distillation of the gum resin of the tree.
Elemi oil is steam distilled from the sap of a tree in the same family as those that produce Frankincense and Myrrh. Elemi’s aroma is woody and smoky, like Frankincense, but the oil contains a higher concentration of terpenes, which give it a lighter, more lemony note.
Possible irritant to sensitive skin
Ancient Egyptians also used Elemi in the embalming process and in modern aromatherapy it can be an alternative for Frankincense for its rejuvenating effects on the skin. Try 2 drops of Elemi and 1 drop of Rose blended with 10ml of Evening Primrose or Borage oil.
To ease the mind and soothe the senses at the end of a hectic day, blend 4 drops of Elemi and 3 drops of Bergamot with 10ml of Peach Kernel oil. Swirl this into a warm bath and lie back and let your thoughts go.
Absolute Aromas sources, professionally packages and presents over 100 pure essential oils, 22 carrier oils and a wide range of aromatherapy accessories of the highest possible quality.
Each essential oil is sourced from established producers in the best country of origin for that particular oil. Every batch is subjected to rigorous testing by an experienced and qualified essential oils chemist, using methods such as gas chromatography.
The same strict standards are applied to the rest of the Absolute Aromas range. Carrier oils are, wherever possible, organically-produced, cold-pressed and of the freshest quality. The specialist infused carrier oils are hand-made using organically-produced plant material infused in organic Sesame oil. We believe that as carrier oils usually make up 98% of an aromatherapy blend, their quality has a very significant impact on the efficiency of the blend.
The name Elemi is said to be derived from Arabic and means ‘as above, so below’. Like Frankincense, it is believed to connect the spiritual, emotional and physical and is an excellent oil to burn during meditation.
