HISTORY:

Pili is also known as Elemi. The word elemi has been used at various times to denote different resins. In the 17th and 18th centuries the term usually denoted a resin from trees of the genus Icica in Brazil, and before that it meant the resin derived from Boswellia Frereana. The word, like the older term animi appears to have been derived from enhaemon (???????): the name of a styptic medicine said by Pliny to contain tears exuded by the olive tree of Arabia.

The ancient Egyptians used Pili oil in the embalming process.Pili is now chiefly used commercially in varnishes and lacquers, and certain printing inks
