Pure Benzoin Resin Oil
Botanical Name: Styrax benzoin
Plant Part: Resin

The Benzoin tree is from Java, Sumatra and Thailand that grows to 8 metres (20 feet). Deep incisions are made in the trunk of the tree from which the greyish colour sap exudes. When the resinous lump becomes hard and brittle, it is collected from the bark. The oil is golden brown, thick and viscous.
Benzoin oil has a sweet, warm and vanilla-like aroma.
For External Cosmetic Use Only

A patch test is recommended to see if your skin is sensitive to the product.
If blending into creams, lotions, body butters etc, 1-2% maximum of the pure absolute oil or essential oil to 100% of the product is usually about right.
