Galbanum Resin has been widely used as incense and in perfumery since ancient times. The Ancient Egyptians used Galbanum as incense and during the embalming process. The Hebrews used it in their anointing oils and the Greeks mention it as being sedative, antispasmodic with diuretic properties. In classical Ayurvedic Medicine, it is considered to exert a balancing action on all three doshas: vata, pitta and kapha.
The use of Ferula galbaniflua in traditional/herbal medicine and for incense goes back thousands of years when it was used in skincare and for health issues related to lack of energy and the respiratory system.
