Benzoin 40% styrax tonkinensis
Country of Origin: Thailand
Botanical Name: Styrax Tonkinensis
Benzoin is sweet, rich, vanilla-like and is of a warm amber colour. It has been traditionally used in Friar's Balsam for steam inhalations, and it is excellent for use in a nourishing blend for dry or weather-worn skin.
As Benzoin is a resinoid, it comes in solid form. We use an odourless diluent - benzyl benzoate - to liquefy it so that it is practical to use..
|Directions Of Use||It is useful for all the family, particularly during the winter months when it is ideal for use in steam inhalations as well as in baths or massage blends for dry or weather-worn skin. In a steam inhalation, try blending with 1 each of Eucalyptus (especially Eucalyptus Radiata for children), Tea Tree or Frankincense. As a treat for weather-worn skin, add 2 drops each of Benzoin, Lavender and Orange to a jar of unfragranced cream or to 10ml of Sweet Almond oil and massage in thoroughly.|
