This particular Styrax tonkinensis resinoid is obtained through molecular distillation.
It is from a wild harvest in Laos, Southeast Asia.This resin is used traditionally as an incense
in fumigation to dispel negativity and malevolent entities.
Benzoin has a “heart note” which carries a pleasant, warming scent reminiscent of Vanilla.
It has great value as a fixative in natural perfumery or as I prefer to say parfum. The sweet
vanilla-ish scent is soothing to the heart both physically and emotionally. Experiencing this
aromatic delight will often evoke euphoric mind waves that ease tension, calm nerves and
allow an aphrodisiacal sensation.
Batuta is the first European writer to mention Benzoin in the fourteenth century.To the
present day Benzoin has been an established article of materia medica.This balsamic botanical
has been recorded for the medical value as a skin reparative and as a styptic to close wounds.
“Friar’s Balsam” is typically known as tincture of benzoin that is used clinically (in a diluted base )
to heal wounds, inflammations and burns.
