Elemi oil is extracted from the resin of Canarium luzonicum (also known as C. commune) of the Burseraceae family and is also known as Manila elemi.
Elemi oil has traditionally been used to reduce lines and wrinkles associated with aging; and is supportive of healthy skin. Also for soothing muscles discomforts after exercise
The Elemi tree is known locally as 'Pili" and the gum is exported from Manila in two qualities: 'Primera' which is cleaned gum and 'Secunda' which is still crude and unclean. The ancient Egyptians used elemi oil in the embalming process. These days is used in incense, soaps and varnish.
Please note, ORGANIKOS VALLEY does not recommend ELEMI OIL be taken internally unless under the supervision of a Medical Doctor certified in clinical Aromatherapy.
