The elemi of the shops is often adulterated, but more frequently a factitious kind is sold for the genuine gum.
Powder the elemi, and dissolve it in the solvent, using gentle heat.
We made a large fire, thanks to the elemi gum, which burns with such ease.
We believe that elemi possesses the same properties as copaiba, and that its indications for internal use are the same.
The incised trunk exudes a gum-resin called brea blanca (white pitch) in the Philippines and elemi in Europe.
In this state they should be dressed with a little resin cerate or elemi ointment.
