Elemi: Canarium luzonicum (Miq.)
Why elemi? When smelling elemi, it’s easy to imagine a cool, spring breeze sweeping through a tropical rainforest. Elemi aromatherapy essential oil is an invigorating top to middle note. It has a light and fresh lemony fragrance with balsamic, slightly green, and sweet undertones with a hint of spice.
