This is NOT your regular Galbanum Essential oil. It is complex, multi-layered and sophisticated. it has a rare sweet powder scent.

I distilled this essential oil in October 2020 from the tears of Galbanum. Ferula galbaniflua/rubricaulis from Afghanistan.

I have 2 forms/types of Galbanum resin in the shop, the fresh semi-liquid resin here-https://www.etsy.com/listing/748033980/galbanum-resin-fresh-a-rare-biblical

And the dry tears here-https://www.etsy.com/listing/882701412/galbanum-tears-a-rare-and-biblical.

They each have a distinct fragrance profile and may indeed be from different species of Ferula. My guess is that the tear form is from Ferula rubricaulis and the sticky resin the regular Ferula Galbaniflua. (There are over 200 species of Ferula!).

This essential oil surprised me with its complex aroma. I expected the “Green” notes to be sharp, front and center, prominent as they are in commercially distilled Galbanum essential oils. However, this essential oil has a delectable, dry, “earthy” perfume heart wrapped in soft sweet powdery green notes.

Until I can actually see the plant from which this resin was collected, I’m afraid I can’t tell with 100% certainty which member of the Ferula family these tears are from.

This essential oil is gorgeous. It has the expected Green notes attributed to Galbanum but they are secondary to a rich earthy heart note and they are sweeter and more delicious than the green notes found in mainstream Galbanum essential oil.
I would love to hear how customers describe the scent of this unusual essential oil!

Galbanum, Ferula Galbaniflua, (or F. Rubricaulis), grow from Afganistan up to Turkistan and Kazakhstan in the north. Their resin, root and seeds are used in traditional medicine, while their leaves are used as a vegetable in some ethnic dishes

Galbanum is one of the four essential ingredients of the Holy Incense mentioned in Exodus 30:34 and Ecclesiastes 24:14–15. It was one of the ingredients of Ketoret, the Jewish Holy Incense that was burned in the Tabernacle in the 1 st and 2nd Jewish Temple at Jerusalem.

It has been used for medicine since time immemorial and is a component in ancient Egyptian Khyphi incense.

In traditional medicine systems, it is a Stimulant, expectorant, antispasmodic, antiflatulent, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antiseptic. It is believed to stimulate digestion and enhance memory and brain function.

Galbanum is used in the making of modern perfumes and is the ingredient that gives the distinctive smell to the fragrances “Must” by Cartier, “Vent Vert” by Balmain, “Chanel No. 19” and “Vol De Nuit” by Guerlain.

Its odour profile is ambery-dry, earthy, sweet, balsamic, resinous with hints of sweet green freshness. Galbanum is one of a small number of green base notes of natural origin.

The family name Ferula refers to the sheath-like sleeve which “Clasps” the hollow stems of most of this family of perennial herbs. A term we still use today, ferrule.

Other members of the Ferula family include Ammoniacum, Asafoetida, Sumbul, (Muskroot), Giant Fennel and Ferula Hermonis, also known as Zallouh or Lebanese Viagra.

    Quality oils, The galbanum is very complex, this is a scent that takes a moment or two to open up. Tends to give off different levels of scent every time I return to it. Sometimes woody other times green leafy, also, a whiff of I daresay; funk…. very therapeutic

    Green aromatics take me to and fro. I seem to be collecting Galbanum. There truly isn’t anything like it. Now I gotta get the fresh Galbanum resin from AGarden. One of my favorite fragrances was Balmain Vent Vert. Galbanum in a fragrance can be hard to find.
