Galbanum Galbanum Essential Oil
Liber Juratus connects this fragrance with the sign of Libra. For Crowley, it was a scent of Air; he mentions it in combination with onycha, storax, and olibanum as ingredients in a dangerous Elemental incense. To me, however, it is more of an Earth scent and is fabulous in Earth magick oils. This magick herb empowers positive sacrifice in the sense of giving up in order to change for the better. It also assists in one's exploration of the self, but what it reveals can be shocking. This scent has traditionally been used for acquiring magickal skills such as divination, contact with angels, and communicating with the dead. On the Tree of Life, galbanum's fragrance helps symbolize Aleph, the path between Keter and Chokmah, and in the tarot, is associated with the Fool. In the Book of Enoch, it signifies the direction East.  Steam-distilled from Ferula galbaniflua in Turkey. Top

Combining With Other Essential Oils

I've read various descriptions of galbanum's aroma (green and piney often occur), but to me it smells of rich, fresh soil - talk about grounding! It's one of my absolute favorites. It goes well with the natural perfumes of algae, amyris, basil, benzoin, birch bud, buchu, camphor, caraway, carrot seed, cedarwood, chamomile, cinnamon, clary sage, clove, costus, cubeb, cumin, cypress, elfwort, elemi, fir balsam, fir, frankincense, geranium, grapefruit, ho leaf, ho wood, juniper berry, labdanum, laurel leaf, lavender, lemon, lemongrass, lovage, melilot, mimosa, myrrh, narcissus, oakmoss, orris, patchouli, pepper, pine, rose, rosewood, sandalwood, spruce, star anise, spruce, storax, tobacco, tonka bean, tuberose, valerian, vetiver, and yuzu. It works best when used in tiny amounts. Top
