Description
Opopanax essential oil is distilled from a resin and comes from the same genus as myrrh—Commiphora. It has a deep, dark aroma that’s earthy, woody, and sweet. Opopanax’s grounding scent can inspire inner harmony, making it a wonderful meditation aid. Opopanax can also harmonize the skin, creating a radiant complexion. Include a few drops in blends to help skin repair itself or to calm redness and blemishes. Our wildcrafted opopanax essential oil is steam distilled from the resin of trees in the thickly forested areas of Somalia and Ethiopia.
Suggested Uses

Complexion - Skincare

Opopanax’s gentle drying effect makes it perfect for oily, acne-prone skincare. Dilute a few drops in hemp oil for a moisturizer.

Relieve - Soreness

Did you stretch too far in yoga? Relieve a sharply tender muscle with a massage blend of opopanax and Trauma Oil.

Breathe - Chest Tension

Open up a tight, constricted chest with an opopanax inhaler. Use it regularly to encourage deep, healthy, natural breathing.

A Passion for Aromatherapy

Aromatics International would not be what it is today without your shared belief in what we do, what we stand for, and how we conduct our aromatherapy practice.

I embarked on my journey to source pesticide-free, sustainable products from small-scale farmers and a major criteria of mine is that everything I source is both aromatically vibrant and also therapeatically effective. I love sharing what I find in this world with others. I am constantly blown away by the positive response I receive from all of you. I thank all of you for your strong support throughout the years and am continually inspired by the warm words you share with me. It truly keeps me going.

Love, Karen
