I met Elemi Essential Oil by sheer accident.  Many years ago, I had a friend who sent a number of oils to me because she had no use for them.  One of those was Elemi.  This essential oil grabbed my heart upon my first scent, directly from the bottle.  I needed no light waft or dry down to know Elemi Essential Oil was THE oil for my heart and mind at that moment.  So much so that I carried the bottle with me for a while.

Then I went to a class at Atlanta's Heal Center, taught by Cathy Skipper and Florian Birkmayer, MD.  The focus of the class was on healing our own emotional trauma to better serve those we are helping.  Per, the pre-class information, I brought three oils that resonated with me emotionally.  That bottle of Elemi Essential Oil was the first one I thought of and added to my bag.  Before class many of us talked about what we'd brought.  One person curled her lips at my elemi and said, "Poor man's Frankincense, it doesn't work as a substitute for the real thing."


I hadn't ever even considered it as a substitute for my beloved Frankincense  . . . I'd considered it on its own as it is.  I let it speak to me and it did.  Apparently, it also spoke to many others.  At the end of that class, we all put our bottles on a community table and used any oil we chose to make our own personal emotional blend.  After we made our blends, we went around the room and discussed what we'd used and why.

Do you know that over 50% of the attendees used that one bottle of elemi in their blends?  For a loving hug, this oil simply can't be beat.  And it goes to show . . . it's essential that you always judge an oil for its own properties.  Don't judge it on others' opinions and don't try to compare it to completely different essential oil.  While Elemi may be touted as a substitute for Frankincense Essential Oil by some, we choose to look at Elemi for its own abilities.

And for a hug when we need one.  Elemi Essential Oil is a "hug in a bottle."

With our pre-diluted oils . . . if diluted for kids is the highest dilution you see, it’s also the max dilution possible. Pre-diluted oils are in fractionated coconut oil.

Elemi Essential Oil Safety Info

Tisserand and Young note that elemi essential oil does contain a minute amount of methyleugenol but feel that the high level of (+)=limonene should counteract any issues caused by this. Our oil has 0.14% methyleugenol. If you’re looking to dilute based on that component alone, max dilution should remain around 12.5%. However, Tisserand and Young do not feel it is necessary to base dilution on the methyleugenol. They do recommend storage in a cool, dark place due to the limonene content (we recommend refrigeration).  Elemi essential oil should still follow the safety guidelines below. ~ Source:  Tisserand, Robert and Young, Rodney. Essential Oil Safety: A Guide for Health Care Professionals: Churchill Livingstone; 2 edition (2013). Reading the full profile for Elemi essential oil is highly suggested by your DeRu Staff.

While we’ve made this clear that we are selling this essential oil to use in your diffuser, your inhaler, or topically (diluted), it is a pure essential oil and can be used as such.  With all essential oils:

  • Never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes (this includes mouth, ear canals, noses, genital regions as well as internal areas).  The strength of essential oils can easily damage these soft tissue areas.
  • Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner.
    Keep away from children.
  • If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).

  • Oral Safety is only given because many people have been told to take oils internally.  Because several people look to us for safety advice, we feel obligated to offer those safety statements, although we do not believe anyone should be ingesting essential oils without being guided by an expert.  Experts will take your medical history into account before they suggest oils for you to ingest, diffuse, or use topically.
