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'.

Thank you for your punctual arrangement that helped me a lot. There is no replacement for your products especially 'Lime' and 'Vanilla' in other companies, as the fragrances are clearly different, even the names are the same. I would like to order again.

Bought the pure coconut carrier oil to use as part of my skincare routine, and it's better than any high end expensive cream I've tried. Highly recommended....thank you!
