Description

Elemi oil is derived from the resin produced by the elemi tree, _Canarium luzonicum_. Native to the Philippines, elemi resin cannot be harvested until a tree is seven years old; from this point onwards the tree is tapped during the budding period, from May to March. An incision is made in the bark and the resin is collected using palm fronds. From this resin, the essential oil is extracted using a steam distillation method. It is spicy, a little lemony, and pairs excellently with olibanum and myrrh.
