When the tall, tropical Canarium luzonicum tree sprouts leaves, a yellow-gold resin is naturally expressed. It hardens on exposure to oxygen, when our distiller hand harvests and steam distills it to create this gorgeous essential oil. Use peppery, lemony, sweet elemi oil in blends for skincare, where its warm touch can nurture vulnerable skin and scars. Elemi’s reassuring influence is also helpful for maintaining strong health, or times when it feels challenging to get deep, cleansing breaths. Our elemi essential oil is organically crafted in the rainforests of the Philippines.
Benefits and uses
The wildcrafted, pale yellow resin of the blooming Canarium luzonicum tree creates a peppery, balsamic, lemony, spicy, warm, woodsy essential oil. Along with offering support for proper lung and sinus activity, elemi essential oil is deeply skin nourishing and restorative. Like other oils distilled from resins, this essential oil is often used to help reduce the appearance of scars and help with minor tissue regrowth. Try combining elemi essential oil with frankincense carterii to create an incredible, skin supporting synergy. Elemi essential oil can help with minor pain and inflammation management and work to reduce the presence of unwanted bacterial, fungal, and viral activity.
Emotionally and energetically, elemi essential oil protects and motivates. This essential oil gently encourages positive thinking, especially during times of situational anxiety and depression.
