Elemi Essential Oil

Elemi Essential Oil has a light, fresh, balsamic, spicy, citrus-like scent. It is colorless to pale-yellow. Resin is extracted with a solvent to form the resinoid. Elemi Essential Oil is obtained by the steam distillation of the resin.

Why Auroma 100% pure and natural, therapeutic grade Elemi Essential Oil from The Aromatherapy Place? Unscrupulous producers often adulterate their essential oils. Over many years of testing, Auroma has developed high standards of testing criteria. Every oil we supply has at least 100 prior tests. On some oils (e.g. Lavender) we have in excess of 1,000 tests. The Auroma advantage lies in our ability to not only perform the tests, but also in having the in-house expertise to correctly analyse and identify adulterants found within essential oils.
