This extract is produced "Astrodynamically" which is a method of preparation I use based on the tenets of traditional plant Alchemy and medicinal astrology. Experience has shown that products made this way distinguish themselves with improved colour, aroma, shelf life and efficacy.
A beautifully fragrant oil. Excellent service too!

It took me a little while to truly appreciate this for what it is. I love resins and this was my first experience with Elemi, outside of it being listed among the top or mid notes within in a cluster of other naturals.
The smell is absolutely divine. When they say “as above, so below” they really mean it. This oil grounds and calms me. Very therapeutic. Currently, I've only used it “neat”. I'm hoping to find other ways of stretching it by adding it to a carrier oil. Either that, or I'll need to buy a much bigger bottle. For now, I'll use it very sparingly.
I definitely plan on purchasing more from this seller, as the quality seems to be top tier. Thank you to the store owner for sending me a phenomenal product.

Gorgeous, as usual, though this one really stands out. The warm, citrusy richness of the Elimi is captured perfectly and it feels wonderful on the skin, making this one of my favorites of Dan's wares. I can't recommend the wonderful wares from Apothecary's Garden highly enough - they're an utter joy...
This is a collection of aromatic materials mentioned in the Old & New Testaments and in ancient Egyptian texts. I often get asked to translate biblical plant names and source the materials they mention. They are all here in this collection.
