Escentia Benzoin (Styrax benzoin) Essential Oil

Sizes: 11ml, 22ml, 50ml, 100ml, 500ml

Benzoin essential oil, also known as Friars Balsam, has a calming effect that can relieve depression and feelings of sadness. Its sweet, balsamic vanilla-like aroma can be used in steam inhalation as a treatment for bronchitis, colds and similar conditions. It presents more like a syrupy liquid than an oil, but it is easy to dilute and is often used as a fixative in soaps and fragrances.

    HOW TO USE

    BLENDS WELL WITH

    Because of its sticky, resinous nature, it doesn't make a good base for blends. For skin tonics it can be blended with rosewater and witch hazel.
