Description

Galbanum resin- This listing is for the fresh resin of Galbanum-Ferula Galbaniflua which grows from Afganistan up to Turkistan and Kazakhstan in the north.
Its fragrance is a lovely bright bitter, dry, green and considered by some the aromatic epitome of green.

This is a new batch of extremely fresh Galbanum. It is in its rawest and most unadulterated form. Which ensures it’s essential oil content is at its peak. The oozing resin is scraped off the plant in semi-liquid form, packed and shipped in clay containers. It is usually processed with chemical solvents and filtered before being sold in bricks or liquid form. However, this is Galbanum resin in its purest and most potent form.
Since it has not been processed you will come across seeds, twigs and the occasional bit of bark. It is extremely fragrant, ooey-gooey and pretty much a thick liquid/paste.

The solid parts of the resin often sink to the bottom of the jar leaving a clear resin on top. Warming the jar helps when removing the resin.

It can be used as-is in incense, tinctured in alcohol for perfume work or infused in oils. You can make your own Galbanum absolute by evaporating the alcohol after tincturing and filtering.

Galbanum resin has a richer, deeper and more complex aromatic profile than Galbanum essential oil.
Like many other resins, it acts as a fixative in perfume and aromatic compositions.

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-green, sweet, balsamic, resinous with hints of freshness. It 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.

    This resin has an enormous fresh green note ! Like a nap in a dense canopy of Jurassic era philodendrons. Mix this in with some Maroke oud, and we have a proper jungle happening. Very happy to have this. I heated this gently on a folded piece of foil on my ceramic heater and the fragrance carried throughout the room. A little goes a long way!

    Beautiful! Unheated it smells like green bell peppers and hot peppers too. Heated on an electric incense burner, there’s
    an added (I’m not kidding) pineapple note in there! My wife agreed on that too!

    after an extended period, my package FINALLY arrived!!! as soon as i opened my mailbox, i was met by the beautiful combined scent of galbanum & labdanum resins 😍. it’s so fragrant that, while exercising social distancing, a woman that was in the lobby when i retrieved it gasped and asked “WOW, what is that!?!”

    i hope dan is able to acquire more, because i never want to NOT have this resin (or the labdanum)! this is going to tincture beautifully!

    thank you dan!!!

    Galbanum, dear, sweet, gorgeous, green galbanum. It's amazing stuff. Kind of gets in your head. Burn it raw on an electric burner in the bedroom and get ready for a crazy ride of dreams. I just adore this resin. Shipped quickly and arrived on time. Thank you so, so much! XO

    Amazing! The fresh resin really does have a more complex and multifaceted aroma compared to the essential oil. I enjoy it much more, in fact. Mixes beautifully with some frankincense, benzoin, and labdanum to make an exquisite incense.

    As a beauty product junkie of many decades, I needed something very different and unique to meet my needs: crispy lips, horrific neck lines, and a crepey forehead, with adult acne! Whatta mess, right? So I set out and created an extremely nourishing anti aging face balm with various humectants, peptides, emollients, and occlusives. Alongside of the essential oils and absolutes in my magical balm, I find that the fresh resin such as this Galbanum and Dan’s Labdanum (both in jars due to their texture) somehow completed and perfected the formula. All I can say is wow! I was completely blown away by the results. I collect Galbanum and shall make more magic with this rare offering.

    This is a fantastic scent. I found it difficult to burn though. It is a gel of sorts so it is hard to put on on burner without smearing it everywhere- it is however worth the hassle. It smells heavenly.
