Description

Back in stock! Rare Madagascar Elemi resin. Fairtrade and sustainable. Canarium Madagascariensis.

A wonderful material for perfume, incense, aromatic/medicated salves, oils and cremes and dissolves easily in alcohol and warm oils.

Named Harami locally, Madagascar Elemi is harvested in the wild and used as incense in the Malagasy culture to freshen the house and create an uplifting atmosphere. It is often incorporated in local folk medicine for skin problems.

Due to the semi-liquid consistency of the fresh resin it is traditionally rolled into balls and wrapped with the leaf of a tree until it can keep its shape on its own.

Madagascar Elemi is more complex in its fragrance profile than the Philippine Elemi we are used to, bringing to mind Somali Frankincense Frereana.

It initially greets one’s nose with sweet Lime and Lemon, then gives way to rich honey notes, a hint of Amber and a muskiness reminiscent of animal fur. It makes a sweet and uplifting incense.

Madagascar Elemi is a pure oleoresin containing no water-soluble gum which causes fragrant resins to emit a charred smell on the charcoal. Because it is a pure oleoresin, it will dissolve easily in oils, waxes and fats for producing candles and cosmetic products. Elemi is traditionally used in cosmetic and beauty products and is considered to have anti-ageing and skin rejuvenating properties.

We scoured the markets of Sambava and Anthala in northern Madagascar for 2 days to collect enough Harami balls for a distillation of its essential oils and placed an order with collectors for more. The essential oil is truly heavenly and you can find it here in the shop.

This is an exquisite aromatic resin and I have a limited quantity. Get it while it lasts.

If your resin is sticky, it may be difficult to remove it intact from the plastic wrapper. My trick and workaround is to place the bag in the fridge or freezer for 15-30 minutes before attempting to separate it from its package. After chilling, it will detach with ease and without leaving any material stuck to the wrapper.

    Wow, this is a really special gift of nature. Both resin and house distilled essential oil are so exceptionally pleasing. It becomes clearish liquified pool on an incense warmer.

    Really like this one and it goes a long way with a little piece. Not as sticky as the Manilla Elemi, but exceptionally fragrant. Dan's EO from this is super good too. A repeat buy.
