Benzoin Essential Oil (resinoid)
Soothing, warming and comforting. Benzoin oil has a lovely creamy, vanilla like fragrance that makes an ideal addition to massage blends for all types of circulatory, joint and muscular problems.
It is also useful for respiratory conditions due to its expectorant properties, and it is especially effective when combined with other expectorant and antiseptic oils such as eucalyptus, frankincense, niaouli, pine or ravensara.
Due to its warm, creamy fragrance and cheering characteristics, Benzoin is comforting if you feel anxious, stressed, tense, worried or lonely. Austrian biochemist Madame Maury, summed up the comforting action benzoin oil has on the emotional system when she wrote 'This essence creates a kind of euphoria; it interposes a padded zone between us and events'.

Just received my Damask Rose facial hydration and am absolutely delighted. This is a beautifully light lotion with a wonderful aroma. Feels lovely on my face and neck and the delicate scent lingers. Can highly recommend.

Fast service. Have only used the product once at the moment (shampoo and conditioner), but it seems to be very good indeed. Plenty of ingredient information, which is just what I wanted. Would certainly recommend.

The essential oil I wanted, Pelargonium capitatum X radens, is not that easy to buy online. I have bought it because it is reputed to keep ticks at bay when a spot is applied to a dog. I was delighted to receive it, and will be using it regularly. Good quick service from Quinessence. Thank you!
