Top 3 Amazing Benefits of Elemi Essential Oil

This might be one of the best essential oils that quietly takes a backseat to its more popular friends. Though, if you’re an essential oil fan, you might know a bit about the benefits of elemi essential oil. If not, this is the place to learn.

An Essential Oil That Comes From A Tree

One might say that elemi essential oil is the distant cousin to frankincense essential oil, for they both come from the same tree family. Elemi essential oil is steam distilled from the resin that is tapped from the Canarium luzonicum tree, which is found in the tropical forests of the Philippines. The tapping method is done in the best possible way to keep the tree from harm and therefore considered sustainable. This essential oil goes way back; so far back that it might have been the same type of essential oil used in embalming ancient Egyptians.

Top 3 Amazing Benefits of Elemi Essential Oil

Though elemi essential oil is not used in embalming today, there are still enough benefits of elemi essential oil to make it an important addition to any essential oil collection. The top 3 amazing benefits include:

1) It has Natural Antiseptic Properties. The strong antiseptic properties of elemi essential oil give it the ability to kill microbes, bacteria, viruses, and fungi. This makes it suitable for treating skin wounds, such as cuts, scrapes, and buns, to avoid infection. Internally, it can help prevent infections in the urinary tract, bladder, colon, and other organs. Elemi essential oil works to fight even serious infections, like sepsis and tetanus.

2) It’s a Natural Pain Reducer. One of the best benefits of elemi essential oil has to do with its analgesic properties. As a natural pain reducer, elemi essential oil can ease head pain, muscle aches, joint pain, and earaches. It also works to reduce fever. All of this is done in the most natural way without the side effects that can come from over-the-counter medications like aspirin and ibuprofen. And unlike prescription painkillers, this essential oil is non-habit forming.

3) It Works as a Natural Expectorant. When colds and flu cause congestion and breathing issues, elemi essential oil is a natural way to get relief. It has the ability to loosen phlegm that clogs the breathing passages in the lungs and nasal cavity. It can also ease coughs and clear congestion to make it easier to breathe.

When it comes to using elemi essential oil, one can choose from a variety of applications. The most common applications are absorption and inhalation.

Top 3 Amazing Benefits of Elemi Essential Oil

Absorption Of Elemi Essential Oil

The absorption method involves applying elemi essential oil to the skin where it can be absorbed into the bloodstream for effectiveness.  Essential oils are highly concentrated, and for this reason should be diluted in a carrier oil before application. The best carrier oils are natural and have a limited fragrance, such as sweet almond or grapeseed oil. Once diluted in the carrier oil, elemi essential oil can be used in a message to soothe sore muscles, rubbed into the feet for quick absorption, or applied to a wound to speed healing. 

Inhalation Of Elemi Essential Oil

A wonderful method to receive the benefits of elemi essential oil is the inhalation method. The molecules in the essential oils are absorbed through the mucous membranes in the nasal passages, or through the air pathways in the lungs where they can pass into the bloodstream and facilitate healing. The best method for inhalation is to use a nebulizing essential oil diffuser. This provides the purest form of essential oil that is not diluted by water, or chemically altered by heat. In this concentrated form, elemi essential oil can work its wonders on the body and soul.
