(2 customer reviews)


Elemi (Canarium luzonicum) essential oil from the Philippines is 100% pure, therapeutic quality essential oil steam distilled from the resin of the Elemi tree. Favored for its anti-inflammatory, decongestant and respiratory benefits, it’s detoxifying, purifying and warming, supporting circulation and digestion. It has a sharp balsamic-spicy, almost lemony scent that also works well for ‘fixing’ blends.

Elemi Essential Oil

Elemi (Canarium luzonicum) essential oil from the Philippines is steam distilled from the gum of the cultivated Elemi tree.

The Elemi tree is related to frankincense, myrrh and opoponax, which all belong to the Burseraceae family. In common with its close relatives, a white or yellow oleoresin is produced when the bark is lacerated. The fragrance of this oleoresin is sharp, green and pungent.

Canarium luzonicum is a deciduous tree found in the forests of Luzon and other islands of the Philippines where it believed to have originated. The elemi tree can easily reach a height of 100 ft.

Elemi oleoresin is mainly found in resin channels just inside the bark, and is mainly produced during the rainy season. It is acquired commercially by lacerating the trunk with deep incisions, known as “tapping” – somewhat similar to the way the sap is gathered from pine trees in the SE U.S.

    My customers LOVE this oil, both as a standalone, and to ass to custom blends! Light, fragrant, pure, and completely natural light, almost citrus smell, that is not heavy or oily.
