Description

Rare and unavailable in the mainstream market.

This listing is for the gorgeous essential oil I distilled from the resin of Madagascar Elemi in April 2021.
And gorgeous it is! I think the resin had time to age and mature giving the essential oil and hydrosol of this distillation a particularly rich and voluptuous aroma. The yield of essential oil from this distillation was considerably less than a distillation with the fresh resin, but wow, what a lovely trade-off!!

Madagascar Elemi, Canarium Madagascariensis has a different fragrance profile than the familiar Philipines Elemi. Bright, musky and sweet, this Elemi is radically unique. and possesses a much richer character than Philipines Elemi.

In October 2016 I took a 70-litre stainless steel pot,’ 2 glass condensers, and a plethora of materials with me to Madagascar on the plane and met there with my friend Marco who had flown in from Italy to meet me.

After 4 days, of off-road, driving around the northern tip of the island we reached Sava County, otherwise known a Vanilla bean country. Also Elemi country.

We scoured the markets of Sambava and Anthala for 2 days to collect enough Harami, ( The local name for Elemi), for this distillation.
We pooled the distillation equipment we each brought from abroad, bought some firewood and set up the still to distill this unique Elemi.

It was a wildly improvised distillation that ended up being performed with the last 1 of 3 condensers after two broke during transport to the site.

Madagascar Elemi is harvested in the wild and used in the Malagasy culture as incense and for skincare.

The Essential oil of Madagascar Elemi is deeper, richer and more complex than Philippine Elemi and is reminiscent of Somali Frankincense Frereana essential oil.

It initially greets one’s nose with sweet Lime and Lemon, then gives way to rich honey notes, a hint of amber, vanilla and musk.

Madagascar Elemi essential oil can be found nowhere else in the world. It is unique and only a handful of people will get to experience it.

    This oil is a perfect encapsulation of the scent of the fresh resin. Lemony, spicy, musky, and enchanting. Well worth the money for such a rare offering of the highest quality.

    Oh my! This version of elemi is so full, so "whole" is the only way I can describe it, compared to the other bottle I have from another source. You haven't experienced elemi until you've smelled this one!

    This is indeed rare and the best Elemi EO I have come across. This is by far superior in scent profile than that other Elemi oils currently on the market. Top grade material.

    Rarest elemi ever that's much better than typical elemi that's very lemony topy. This one is much more long lasting base note.

    Beautiful musky, lemony, tenacious aroma is delivered by this high quality distillation. If you like the fresh resin, you will love this oil! I think I managed to get one of the last bottles before the stock sold out. Many thanks to Dan for making these artisanal products available, even if for a short time! I check this shop frequently and purchase quickly–I've never been disappointed.
