Description / colour / Consistency: This resin is a thick brown, viscous liquid. Deep incisions are made in the trunk of the tree from which the grayish-coloured sap exudes. When the resinous lump becomes hard and brittle, it is collected from the bark. It is then cleaned and processed by solvent extraction to produce the thick, resinous oil. Also known as Gum Benjamin, Benzoin is one of the classic ingredients of incense, and it has been widely used in perfumery.
Aromatic Summary / Note / Strength of Aroma: Benzoin oil has a scent that is similar to vanilla. It is a rich, sweetly satisfying note that is warm. A comforting, grounding and uplifting oil that is used as a base note with a medium aroma.

Note: We recommend placing the bottle in a very hot water bath, changing the water frequently and once it is back to the liquid state, gently agitate before use.
