Product Abstract: Closely related to the trees that give us Frankincense and Myrrh, Elemi exudes an exotic, fragrant resin when its leaves are sprouting. This yellow resin, similar to Frankincense and Muhuhu, has a strong woody scent, which solidifies when it comes into contact with the air. Elemi is known locally as pili, and the gum is exported from the Philippines. It has been used as a substitute for Frankincense, which has been used throughout the civilized world since ancient times.
