Galbanum Essential Oil has a powerful green, leafy-earthy aroma with smooth woody, balsamic undertone. Galbanum Oil has excellent fixative properties and, due to its intense aroma, requires only extremely small quantities to impart its green notes and to fix top notes and accords, with similar effects for middle and base notes.
The use of Ferula galbaniflua in traditional/herbal medicine and for incense goes back thousands of years when it was used in skincare and for health issues related to lack of energy and the respiratory system. The father of ancient medicine, Hippocrates, used it in many curative recipes. The Ancient Egyptians used Galbanum as incense and during the embalming process.
Incorporated into any perfumery composition, Galbanum Essential Oil boosts fragrance properties. It thus enters into the composition of many perfumes because of its power to fix odor and enhance long-lastingness. Galbanum Oil is also highly revered for its healing cicatrization properties which are great for the skin. It is generally used in the East in a similar way for treating wounds, inflammation and skin disorders. Additional reported benefits include its qualities as an emollient to rejuvenate mature skin and as a detoxifier. Along with helping to ease unwanted muscle spasms, Galbanum Oil is often used in pain and inflammation management.
Emotionally and energetically, Galbanum Essential Oil is often chosen to cleanse and protect the mind and spirit. It can provide emotional fortitude when one is overwhelmed or worried and usher in peace and comfort during trying moments. The herbaceous green, and slightly-sweet aroma of Galbanum Oil can also help soothe nervous tension and is ideal for personal meditation when added to a diffuser or personal inhaler.
