    Damar Gum


    Damar Gum / Damar Resin Natural.

    Top quality Natural Damar Gum. Damar (or Dammar) gum, is obtained from the Dipterocarpaceae family of trees in India and East Asia. It is usually produced by tapping trees, however, some is collected in fossilized form from the ground. The gum varies in colour from clear to pale yellow, while the fossilized form is grey-brown.

    USES: Damar is used in foods, as a clouding or glazing agent, and in incense, varnish, paint making, encaustic paints and other products.

    Damar is used as an ingredient in the popular Beeswax Food Wraps, mixed with beeswax and jojoba oil.

    Damar varnish, made from Damar Gum mixed with turpentine, was introduced as a picture varnish in 1826 commonly used in oil painting, both during the painting process and after the painting is finished. A good varnish can be made with a proportion of 600g Damar to 1 litre of turpentine (Damar is soluble in Gum Turpentine but not Mineral Turpentine). This can be thinned as needed to suit brush-ability requirements for individual jobs.

    Damar crystals are also dissolved in molten paraffin wax to make batik, to prevent the wax from cracking when it is drawn onto silk or rayon.

    Encaustic
    Damar can be added to the beeswax in various proportions as suits individual requirements from a minimum of 10% to a maximum of 35%. The Damar resin is added directly to the wax and the two are melted together before the addition of the pigment.

    Pine Resin


    Pine Resin

    Pine Resin (Pinus sp.), also called Colophony, Rosin and Greek pitch, is a solid form of resin obtained from various species of Pine trees and some other conifers. The resin is usually produced by heating fresh liquid resin to vaporize the volatile liquid terpene components. It is often semi-transparent and ranges in color from yellow to black. At room temperature Pine resin is brittle, but it easily melts at slightly higher temperatures. Gum Rosin chiefly consists of various resin acids, especially abietic acid.

    The name “Colophony” comes from “Colophonia resina”, Latin for “resin from Colophon,” an ancient city in Ionia and likely one of the oldest of the twelve cities of the Ionian League.

    Natural Reusable Food Wraps 

    Pine tree resin is a popular ingredient for making reusable Beeswax food-wraps (often combined with Damar gum and Jojoba oil).

    For bulk quantities (e.g. 5kg+) please inquire for wholesale prices.

    Incense Charcoal Tablets – Roll of Ten – Quick & Easy to Light.

    How to use incense Charcoal tablets:

    • Remove a tablet from the sealed roll and have a heat proof dish ready.
    • Light the edge of the tablet. The tablets do not usually light easily if they are lying flat. It is best to hold it in the air with tongs or tweezers when lighting.
    • Wait for the charcoal to ignite and warm up, this usually takes about 3 minutes (you will notice the charcoal starting to go grey around the edges).
    • Place the charcoal in the heatproof dish, it will start to turn white, and will continue to burn for about one hour.
    • Sprinkle a small amount of incense onto the charcoal, too much will either fill the room with smoke or swamp the charcoal. You can always add more if you need to.
    • Enjoy the beautiful aroma!
    • Ensure that the remaining ashes from the charcoal are completely extinguished and cold before discarding.

    Charcoal is susceptible to moisture. Once the package is opened, store charcoal in plastic or foil and keep away from moisture.

    Elemi Gum Manila Soft White.

    Elemi Gum Manila Soft White. Elemi is the gum resin secreted by the Canarium luzonicum tree, which can grow up to 30m high and belongs to the same botanical family as Frankincense and Myrrh. This tree grows wild in the tropical forests of the Philippines.

    The gum is naturally secreted when the tree is attacked by a parasite. The gum is also produced when the “tapping technique” is applied. An incision is made in the bark when the tree is sprouting leaves and the pale yellow gum oozes out and solidifies on contact with the air and slightly darkens in colour. A mature tree can produce up to 5kg of gum per year. The scent is citrus-like and spicy with a hint of fennel.

    It was used in “Chinese incense” as far back as the 7th century for religious ceremonies, to perfume homes, and was even worn in small pouches around the neck as a perfume. It may to help relieve stress and nervous exhaustion and bring on feelings of peace.

    Elemi Gum


    Elemi Gum Manila Solid Dark.

    Elemi Gum Manila Solid Dark. Elemi is the gum resin secreted by the Canarium luzonicum tree, which can grow up to 30m high and belongs to the same botanical family as Frankincense and Myrrh. This tree grows wild in the tropical forests of the Philippines.

    The gum is naturally secreted when the tree is attacked by a parasite. The gum is also produced when the “tapping technique” is applied. An incision is made in the bark when the tree is sprouting leaves and the pale yellow gum oozes out and solidifies on contact with the air and slightly darkens in colour. A mature tree can produce up to 5kg of gum per year. The scent is citrus-like and spicy with a hint of fennel.

    It was used in “Chinese incense” as far back as the 7th century for religious ceremonies, to perfume homes, and was even worn in small pouches around the neck as a perfume. It may to help relieve stress and nervous exhaustion and bring on feelings of peace.
