Galbanum oil is a member of the Apiaceae family. This oil possesses an intensely green, fresh leafy odour with a dry woody back note of balsamic, bark like character. It is classed as a top note and blends well with earthy, minty and woodsy oils.
Galbanum is widely known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and nervine properties. When used in moderation, it is a highly versatile oil that can aid in calming and support a peaceful outlook and emotional state.
Essential oils can be applied topically once diluted with a carrier oil. They are widely used in cosmetic goods and handmade crafts.
