Quick Overview

Benzoin, 10mL


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
