What is Benzoin Oil?
Benzoin Essential Oil originates from a type of phenolic resin produced primarily in Indonesia. This resin has played a significant role in various cultural, religious, and traditional practices due to its aromatic properties and potential health benefits.
Benzoin resin has a sweet and comforting scent, which made it a popular choice for fragrance in religious rituals and ceremonies. Beyond its aromatic uses, benzoin was also valued as a natural flavoring in foods.
Benzoin Essential Oil, extracted from the resin, possesses a range of properties that contribute to its potential benefits. It has demonstrated antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and pesticidal effects. In this day and age, Benzoin Essential Oil is best known for its warm, vanilla fragrance, commonly added to fragrance blends and perfumes.

It was what I expected and some.
I haven't used it yet but I plan on using it for many things. I read than it could be used for a lot of things. I love the way it smells nice and seems to be of good quality. It shipped really fast and I plan on ordering more soon.
Super service and good product!
I used some of the benzoin for a soap. It was thicker oil than Im used to working with for fragrance, but I found a tip to thin it down. Once I thinned it down, it worked great!
Just like vanilla!
Can't get enough of this!
