Key constituents: (Tisserand pg 349)

a-Pinene (58.8- 78.6%), B- Myrcene (0.2-12.3%), Linalool (0.1-3.7%), B-Pinene (1.2 - 3.3%), Verbenone (0- 2.9%),Pinocarveol (tr - 2.1%), B-Caryophyllene (0.2 - 2.0%), (+)-Limonene (0.4-1.6%), Methyl-o-cresol (0.4-1.2%), Camphoraldehyde II (tr- 1.1%), Caryophyllene oxide (tr-1.1%), Methyleugenol (tr-0.1%).

Similar to Galbanum with its tart green qualities, it is a bit sweeter and not as shy as Violet Leaf. As a matter of fact, both Galbanum and Mastic may be added to Violet Leaf in minute amounts to lend a bit more robustness to the perfume.

Mastic and Galbanum lend unusual interest to blends. Added to other green culinaries, such as basil, they will accentuate the spicier qualities of the Ocimum family while creating a more complex effect that would not be possible if just using Basil.

Both Mastic and Galbanum create gorgeous fixation to high quality florals.

When desiring to create a meditation blend, adding any of these three green notes to the high vibrational aromatics such as Sandalwood, Frankincense or Myrrh will create an interesting and deeply centering effect.
