Benzoin Resinoid (Styrax benzoin), extruded
Our wildcrafted Benzoin Resinoid (Styrax benzoin) from Laos is a thick syrupy consistency. This completely natural form of Benzoin is preferred for aromatherapeutic applications. For perfumery, you may prefer our more pourable Benzoin diluted in DPG.
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.
In addition to its antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties, it also boosts the elasticity of the skin. As the skin ages, benzoin is essential to slowing down the signs of aging. Benzoin resin is obtained from the bark of several species of Styrax trees.Essential Oil Safety Considerations
