Benzoin Essential Oil (resinoid)

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'.

Second time purchasing from Quinessence and still very happy. Products arrived in a slightly large box for the products ordered to be honest but I ended up using it for something else and of course it's recyclable when I'm done with it so it's fine. The items were in perfect condition and so far have been very kind to my skin and nose :-)

3 January 2018

I ordered a selection of oils for my daughter who was diagnosed with Bronchitis. I had sent her instructions on how to blend with a little carrier oil and how to apply it. As I live in France and she is in the U.K. I requested that they would be sent direct and payed the extra for 24 hour delivery . They arrived by midday the following day and she started using them straight away. She noticed a big improvement overnight and will continue to use for a week or 2 until fully recovered.
