Organic opopanax oil is steam distilled from Commiphora guidottii resin. This base to middle note is also known as sweet myrrh and has a bright resinous scent with sweet-balsamic undertones. The oil contains a lot of resin which can separate over time, creating resinous crystals on the bottle.

This oil can be used in perfumery as a fixative, blended into cosmetic products, and incorporated into rituals and meditation as an aromatic resin. Energetically opopanax is balancing and calming. Opopanax essential oil is popular in cosmetics and aromatherapy, and blends well with frankincense, grapefruit, cinnamon, or sandalwood oils.

Blends Well With
Opopanax has a clean scent that blends well with most aroma notes including other resin oils like frankincense or myrrh, floral notes like lavender, and citrus notes like sweet orange and grapefruit. Because of its soft undertones it also supports woody and spice type oils.

Packaging
1/2 oz. and 1 oz. essential oils are packaged in amber glass bottles with drop reducers for easy application.

Label Updates
We are currently transitioning to an oil-resistant label for our essential oils. If ordering more than one oil you may receive both types of labels as we make this transition. Our new labels are a poly-base and printed in full color in-house.

Precautions
This oil can cause skin sensitization. Never use essential oils undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children.

Before using topically, perform a small patch test on your inner forearm or back by applying a small quantity of diluted essential oil and apply a bandage. Wash the area if you experience any irritation. If no irritation occurs after 48 hours it is safe to use on your skin.
