Elemi Essential Oil
Elemi oil is helpful in the treatment of the respiratory tract. Inhale the oil to relieve catarrh and use as a chest rub for coughs and colds. I like to blend 1 drop Elemi. 1 drop Frankincense and 1 drop Myrrh in 10mls (2 teaspoons carrier oil).
Elemi is also said to rejuvenate the skin. You can create a lovely skin cream using 1 drop Elemi, 1 drop Frankincense and 1 drop neroli to every 10gms of carrier cream. This would be particularly suitable for mature skin and to hold back the signs of ageing.
Elemi is also a good oil for boosting the immune system. Try 3 drops Elemi and 3 drops Lavender in your bath.
To balance your emotions and induce feelings of euphoria try Elemi either on its own or blend it with Bergamot.
On a spiritual level Elemi helps us to let go of past traumas and move forward.
