Pink African Resin
Adam Michael has this to say “This Ugandan resin shares the same botanical name as our African Elemi, but it is completely different aromatically.
The aroma of this Ugandan resin is a yummy soft pink peppery affair throughout with ylang ylang and elemi nuances. This 2018 batch of resin is soft, sticky, and sold in slices. Just sitting this resin on my desk floods the room with a scent that perfectly resembles smelling pink pepper essential oil.
This material will dilute down fine in alcohol (mostly) should you wish to create a tincture however the end result will be somewhat sticky and as such if you can acquire it I would advise the tincture is made with benzyl benzoate as this results in a far less sticky end material ( I hope to eventually be able to offer this at Hermitage). I highly encourage everyone to tincture this material at 20% for best results as well. Please note tincturing in cold alcohol is not an overnight process (several months) and some parts of the resin will not dissolve and will require filtration.”
Botanical Name: Canarium Schweinfurthii
** At Hermitage Oils should you wish to burn the material neat we would recommend burning the material on an oil burner opposed to using charcoal disks. If you follow this recommendation we also advise placing a piece of foil in the well of your oil burner and then laying the resin on top. This prevents lots of mess and cleaning after use and by using an oil burner you get to enjoy much more of the aroma of the resin than when using charcoal disks.
