Elemi Essential Oil
Ancient Rejeuvenating Soothing Expectorant, Tonic, Antiseptic
Elemi is an ancient essential oil and was one of the oils the Egyptians used in the embalming process.
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.
