Benzoin Resinoid (Styrax benzoin), extruded aka Onycha
This Wildcrafted Benzoin Resinoid (Styrax benzoin) from Laos is extra thick – almost a paste. For perfumers and natural product makers, this un-diluted Benzoin may be preferable to our Benzoin that has been diluted in DPG, because it is completely natural – IF you can make the thickness work in your desired applications. (Styrax benzoin) Benzoin resinoid is sold on many companies’ websites as “Benzoin essential oil” so be careful when purchasing. This very thick Benzoin liquid resin is more appropriate for aromatherapy than our more pourable Benzoin diluted in DPG.
Benzoin – Very Thick:
Wildcrafted and then Extruded in Laos.
Our Benzoin is Wildcrafted and then extruded, rather than being steam distilled like most essential oils. This is why the correct designation is Benzoin Resinoid rather than Benzoin Essential Oil.
We think our extruded Benzoin has a very fine aroma. It carries a low risk for skin sensitization but can cause reactions if used on hypersensitive, diseased or damaged skin.
We also offer several more Artisan Aromatics Oils extracted from resins including:
Quality & Experience

Using our 20+ years of experience, we’ve gathered the finest quality oils from around the world. To ensure that our oils are as fresh and potent as possible, our oils are bottled by hand here in the USA only after each order is received.
IMPORTANT: All issues that pertain to your physical or mental health should be discussed with and supervised by a licensed health care professional. Keep all essential oils away from and out of reach of children. We recommend you consult a trained aromatherapist before using essential oils with children under 16 years of age.
