Galbanum Oil (aromatherapy)

Galbanum Oil is a colorless to pale yellow or pale olive-yellow, mobile liquid which possesses an intensely green, fresh-leafy odor with a dry- woody undertone of balsamic, bark like character. A very striking description often heard is “like green peppers or tossed green salad”. The oil has a pine-like topnote which is less pronounced in the odor of the resinoid.
