These botanical gems come to life in our signature scent range, Elemi & Orris. Join us as we explore their rich heritage and the wellness they offer.
Elemi: The Resin of Renewal
Exploring Elemi's Origins
Elemi, scientifically known as Canarium luzonicum, is a resin harvested from the canarium tree native to the Philippines. Its name is derived from the Arabic word "al-luban," which means "milk."
Elemi's history is as rich as its aroma. In ancient Egypt, it was used in the embalming process, and during medieval times, it graced European courts as a precious incense. It's been a symbol of renewal and purification for centuries.
Orris Root: The Iris's Hidden Gem
Unveiling Orris Root's Legacy
Orris root, derived from the rhizomes of the iris plant (Iris germanica or Iris pallida), is known for its sweet, violet-like scent. It has been valued since the 16th century for its unique fragrance and cosmetic properties.
A Fragrant Tradition
Orris root has been an esteemed ingredient in perfumery, cosmetics, and potpourri for centuries. Its subtle, powdery aroma adds a touch of sophistication and elegance to fragrances.
