Origin: a Latin derivative
meaning "Gift of the Earth."
Egyptians used galbanum for incense and embalming the dead. The Roman and Greek civilizations used it in beauty products like balms and perfume. Hippocrates used it for various wellness purposes. Galbanum was even mentioned in the Bible.
Part of the carrot family and related to caraway and fennel, the galbanum plant is a tall, bushy perennial herb with small flowers, shiny leaves, and smooth stems. The gum resin is released when the base of the stem is cut. CPTG Certified Pure Tested Grade™ Galbanum essential oil has a complex aroma that is fresh, green, earthy, and woody.
