Galbanum Resin- Fresh! A Rare Biblical fragrance material for perfume and incense. Ferula Gummosa-Afghanistan

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

This is a particularly pure batch of liquid resin with very little debris in it.

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 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, sharper, deeper, and more complex aromatic profile than Galbanum essential oil.
Like many other resins, it is 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.

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, and resinous with hints of freshness. It is one of only a few natural green base notes.

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 is ferrule.

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