Our Benzoin Resinoid (Styrax benzoin) diluted in DPG is a pourable form of Benzoin resinoid that we offer specifically for use by perfumers. This product is not appropriate for therapeutic use. Often it is sold as either pure or diluted in DPG, is sold on many companies’ websites as “Benzoin essential oil” so be careful when purchasing.
Our Benzoin resinoid diluted in DPG is wildcrafted. Without the addition of DPG, it is a semi-solid paste. When diluted with DPG, it is still quite thick but “pourable”. We think it has a very fine aroma – earthy with a sweet, almost vanilla like smell. It carries a low risk for skin sensitization but can cause reactions if used on hypersensitive, diseased or damaged skin. Another name for it is “Onycha”.Essential Oil Safety Considerations
