Benzoin Resin, Pourable is manufactured through an extraction process from styrax benzoin bark. It can be incorporated into essential oil blends.
Benzoin gum is used in the perfume industry as a scent fixative and stabilizer, similar to orris root. It is also used as a preservative system, and many claim it helps with psoriasis. Please be aware that the extract of benzoin certainly holds its natural pleasant scent which can be described as a mildly spicy vanilla-like scent.
This product is designed for external use only. Dilute properly before using, as this product can cause skin sensitivity in some people. Oil-soluble.
