Galbanum essential oil is a very versatile oil.
It has good skin conditioning properties - it's great when added to a base cream or lotion and applied to mature and wrinkled skin.
It's also effective in offering pain relief especially in rheumatism or similar. Try using it in a hot compress over the affected area - hold in place until cooled. Using it this way may also help to quicken recovery from skin infections and inflammations.
When blended in a carrier oil it can again offer a good pain relieving action.
You can also burn or vaporise Galbanum to make use of its antiseptic properties as it can help to combat airborne viruses etc.
Ferula galbaniflua Resin Oil is the essential oil obtained from the
resin of the Galbanum, Ferula galbaniflua, Apiaceae.

"Although Galbanum is little used in modern aromatherapy, it offers interesting possibilities, especially in chronic conditions such as rheumatism. It will give a lot of relief from persistent pain, particularly when used in hot compresses. It is equally useful for skin infections and inflammations that are slow to heal" - from Aromatherapy an A - Z by Patricia Davis.
