Description

This is a rare and gorgeous essential oil that showcases the unique character of African Elemi and projects the nuances that distinguish it from its cousins, Madagascar Elemi and mainstream Philippine Elemi.

You can find the resin here in the shop-https://www.etsy.com/listing/590357120/camonya-african-elemi-resin-canarium.

Camonya-Also known as African Elemi and Canarium schweinfurthii is a rarely available and wonderfully fragrant natural oleoresin for perfume, incense, aromatic/medicated salves, oils and cremes.

Traditionally harvested in the wild tropical jungles of West/Central Africa and Congo, eastwards to Uganda, the fruit of the tree is edible and the seeds are high in fatty acids.

The resin of Canarium schweinfurthii is collected after cutting the bark and used as incense for ceremonial and domestic purposes. Internally, the fragrant resin is anti-parasitic and when blended with fats and oils acts as an emollient, (Soothes, softens and moisturizes the skin), It is traditionally used to treat skin infections such as eczema, prickly heat and skin rashes. All the resins of the Elemi family are considered skin healing, nourishing and rejuvenating.

Camonya presents an aromatic profile that is similar in character to Manilla Elemi and Madagascar Elemi but with more depth, complexity and softness than its sisters. It strikes me as the mature one in the family. while Philipines Elemi is soft, lemony and sweet, Madagascar Elemi has a deep and unique earthy musk note. African Elemi distinguishes itself with notes of Oak and Black cherry and a musk note that is more penetrating and airy than earthy.

As incense on the coal, African Elemi offers an intriguing bouquet that initially greets one’s nose with honeyed Lemon and mint, then gives way to soft Ambers, tobacco, wet dirt and a muskiness reminiscent of warm animal fur. It makes a sweet and uplifting incense and when dissolved in warm oils creates a (distractingly), sensuous and healing massage oil.

The Elemi essential oil we are familiar with is that of Manila Elemi, Canarium Luzonicum and is considered to have anti-ageing and skin rejuvenating properties which are shared by all 3 species.

    Rarity and quality are the themes with these items. A fantastic African elemi distillation that beautifully captures the scent of the fresh resin, which happens to be my favorite elemi variety. Don't wait on this one! It will disappear before long, which is why I hopped on a second bottle.

    Very potent and smells exactly like the fresh resin. I can't wait to use it, though I feel it will require a careful hand, as it's so rare and precious.

    Dan always knocks it out of the park on all of his essential oils. They always smell right on par with what you’d expect from the material. Sometimes even better! Very pungent! Outstanding as always, thank you!

    This is one of those super rare oils that you will probably find no where else. The resin, itself, is hard to find, but an essential oil made from the resin is a downright unicorn. As for the oil itself, it is amazing–smells just like the fresh resin but about 10x more potent. Lemony, resinous, musky sensual goodness. Get some while you can. My gratitude to Dan and this shop for offering such an amazing product.
