Description of Galbanum Oil
Steam-distilled from the "galbanum gum" collected from a variety of Ferula plants native to the Middle East, Galbanum Oil softens the intensity of its original material, instead bringing out the gum's fresh and green-woody qualities. The oil is typically pale yellow or olive colored, with an odor often compared to bell peppers or a fresh salad. Galbanum oil also retains a piney topnote, offering a woody and somewhat balsamic contrast to the oil's intensely green aroma. In fragrance, this oil is most commonly added to leafy or forest-based perfumes, added alongside ingredients such as pine needle, oakmoss, and sage. Galbanum oil also works well alongside many different floral arrangements, especially those containing violet or lavender.
