ABOUT THE PLANT

Also known as the Galbanum gum tree, Galbanum is actually a perennial shrub in the Umbelliferae family (along with Fennel, Aniseed, and Angelica). Native to the Middle East and western Asia, it is now more commonly cultivated in Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan and Lebanon.

ABOUT THE OIL

The resin is extracted by making small incisions in the bark at the base of the plant, much in the same way Frankincense and Myrrh is harvested. The droplets of resin dry into hard, walnut-sized brown exudates that are collected and distilled into essential oil. This Galbanum essential oil is clear, sourced from the resin of naturally cultivated Turkish Galbanum and steam distilled.
