Galbanum Essential Oil

Galbanum - ferula galbaniflua

We are proud to supply Galbanum essential oil, steam distilled in England from resin of the ferula galbaniflua plant imported from Iran.

Galbanum, a green, fruity-floral odour reminiscent of green apples, sometimes referred to as the sacred “mother oil” goes deep into human history.

And the LORD said unto Moses, Take unto thee sweet spices, stacte, and onycha, and galbanum; [these] sweet spices with pure frankincense: of each shall there be a like [weight]:

And thou shalt make it a perfume, a confection after the art of the apothecary, tempered together, pure [and] holy… Exodus 30:35-6

Often used as a “green” note in perfumery, it is the ingredient which gives the distinctive odour to “Must” by Cartier, “Vent Vert” by Balmain, “Chanel No. 19” and “Vol De Nuit” by Guerlain.

Initial notes are bitter, acrid, peculiar, followed by a complex green, spicy, woody, apple-like balsamic odour: reminiscent of crushed foliage at the height of summer.

Supplied in 5 ml bottles only. Best to telephone before visiting as stocks are low. A tester is available.

Essential Oils at Piccadilly Market, St James’s Church

St James's Church, Piccadilly

When you visit Little Swift at Piccadilly Market to buy your essential oils, why not take in a lunchtime concert at the beautiful St James’s Church?

There is a range of recitals to choose from, featuring renowned musicians and a variety of composers, occurring several times a week in the fabulous Wren church with its excellent acoustics.

Or visit St James’s Church for a quiet few minutes, escaping the bustle of central London. The church, where William Blake was baptised in 1757, has soothed generations of Londoners and visitors.
