Elemi (Canarium luzonicum) is a large evergreen tree endemic to the Philippines. Trees grow up to 30 meters tall and are prized for their highly fragrant oleoresin (naturally occuring mixture of plant resin and oil). The pale yellow, honeylike resin can be steam distilled to produce elemi essential oil, which is used in cooking, perfumery, medicine and in many varnishes and lacquers.
