Elemi is a Tropical tree up to 30 meters high, yielding a resinous pathological exudation with a green pungent odour. Although it is called gum it is almost entirely made up of resin and essential oil. Native to the Philippine Islands and the Moluccas where it is also cultivated and distilled. There are several other species that grow wild or are cultivated in the Philippines, which also yield gum. It is closely related to Myrrh and Frankincense.
