Elemi trees grow throughout Africa and in the Philipines. Wherever it grows, it is used in local medicine often by dissolving the fresh resin in oil.

This extract is produced "Astrodynamically" which is a method of preparation I use based on the tenets of traditional plant Alchemy and medicinal astrology. Experience has shown that products made this way distinguish themselves with improved colour, aroma, shelf life and efficacy.

Fragrant gem

I fell in love with elemi as an essential oil years ago, but this oleo-extract is so much more rich and complex. I'm looking forward to using this in my next facial serum!

It took me a little while to truly appreciate this for what it is. I love resins and this was my first experience with Elemi, outside of it being listed among the top or mid notes within in a cluster of other naturals.

The smell is absolutely divine. When they say “as above, so below” they really mean it. This oil grounds and calms me. Very therapeutic. Currently, I've only used it “neat”. I'm hoping to find other ways of stretching it by adding it to a carrier oil. Either that, or I'll need to buy a much bigger bottle. For now, I'll use it very sparingly.

I definitely plan on purchasing more from this seller, as the quality seems to be top tier. Thank you to the store owner for sending me a phenomenal product.
