Our benzoin is a dilution of 20% benzoin resin in naturally occurring benzyl benzoate (to make it pourable).
This scented gum, best known in the West as a key ingredient of Friars Balsam, benzoin has been used for thousand of years in the East. Used in elixirs particularly for its heating and drying effects on cold & damp conditions.
A very warming, relaxing and nurturing oil to use in times of confusion and worry. Useful for dry, chapped and cracked skin helping to increase elasticity.
