Description

Galbanum Tears- This listing is for the tears of Galbanum-Ferula Gummosa/Rubricaulis which grows from Afganistan up to Turkistan and Kazakhstan in the north. The tears are much easier to work with when preparing incense.
For the fresh, sticky semi-liquid resin of Galbanum please see this page-https://www.etsy.com/listing/748033980/galbanum-resin-fresh-a-rare-biblical

Usually sold as a sticky mass, this material is in the form of dry tears much like Frankincense, Myrrh and other familiar resins.
It has a unique green/earthy aroma on the coal and the essential oil has a rare complex dry perfume to it with hints of green.

Since it has not been processed you will come across seeds, twigs and the occasional bit of bark.

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.

Like many other resins, it acts as a fixative in perfume and aromatic compositions.

This Galbanum has a slightly different fragrance profile than the sticky resin in the shop. The green notes are not as front and center pungent and appear as soft sweet green secondary notes.

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 can be found in recipes for 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.

Its odour profile is amber, sweet, balsamic, with hints of fresh, sweet green notes. 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.

    I haven't used Galbanum before, but I figured I would try it out. It's one of my favorite new additions to the lab. I'll be playing around with it in incense, perfume, and making medicinal unguents and balms.

    I am at a loss forwards! Seriously, timely in delivery, exquisite in quality but my personal communication skills are pretty much limited to verbose and boring, failed humor or generally awkward and insulting!! How about you fine folks at Etsy allow us leave it at the stars and focus on how many of YOUR words are used and not ours!!!
    Any retort will be wasted on me, I can't read!! Arrivederci!!!

    Absolutely amazing. These years have all the green beauty of the wet and sticky galbanum but are so much easier to work with. They produce a softer scent, yes, but it's still just gorgeous.
