    Default Galbex 183

    Does anyone know a source of small amounts of Galbex 183 in the USA? The only sources I have found are in Australia or in the Netherlands at De Hekserij (and I don't think they ship to the US).

    I have several formulas that call for that base that I would like to try. I have substituted regular galbanum oil but I understand that Galbex is actually much stronger and with a greener character.

    Also helpful: good substitutes for Galbex for those with the experience to make such recommendations?

    I think you could substitute Galbascone : Methyl Pamplemousse : Cyclogalbanate in a 3:1:1 ratio to sub for Galbex 183, as a rough approximation... Without me doing any testing for you...

    But my last purchase of Galbex 183 was here:

    I looked at their website a while back but I thought there were some issues with shipping to America. I guess I need to reexamine that

    Perhaps someone knows, how much and what kind of difference there is between Galbanum Oil (Ferula Galbaniflua) and Galbex 183? I have Galbanum oil (b-piene 60%, carene 20%, a-piene 14% as main aroma chemicals). I'm putting together an order from Hekserij, but as it is already over 200 euros, I must choose carefully, what to add.

    Galbex 183 is more fruity, even pineapple-y, than the severe Galbanum EO.

    Galbex is more like neobutenone than galbanum EO. It is fruitier and, to my nose, less harsh and raw. In a way I would say that galbex is to galbanum as iso e super is to cedarwood or clearwood to patchouli.
