Description

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.

The two main types of Benzoin are Siam (styrax tonkinensis) and Sumatra (styrax benzoin). The Sumatran type is much cheaper to produce and coarser than the superior Siam type, which we stock.

Even diluted to 40%, it can still solidify easily and the bottle may be warmed in the hands or in warm water before use.

We source this oil from Siam (the old name for Thailand).

It is useful for all the family, particularly during the winter months when it is ideal for use in steam inhalations as well as in baths or massage blends for dry or weather-worn skin.

In a steam inhalation, try blending with 1 each of Eucalyptus (especially Eucalyptus Radiata for children), Tea Tree or Frankincense.

As a treat for weather-worn skin, add 2 drops each of Benzoin, Lavender and Orange to a jar of unfragranced cream or to 10ml of Sweet Almond oil and massage in thoroughly.

 

Country of Origin: Siam.

Plant Family: Styrax.

Method of Extraction: It is steam distilled from the resin.

Did you know: 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.

The Juniper fruits are widely used for gin production. Try a vigorous massage with a blend of 2 drops of Juniperberry and 2 drops of Grapefruit in 10ml of Coconut oil. Or add this to an unfragranced shower gel, the same essential oils have a cleansing and refreshing effect.

The distillation of the oil is mainly undertaken in Spain, but also occurs elsewhere in the Mediterranean region.There are many different species of Thyme and within Thymus Vulgaris there are a variety of chemotypes that change the constituent make-up of the oil significantly.

The most common chemotypes are "Thymol" and "Carvacrol", which contain high levels of toxic Phenols (up to 60% Thymol and Carvacrol).  Absolute Aromas offers "Sweet Thyme", which is sweeter, less toxic and less irritant than the Thymol and Carvacrol types, with a maximum 3% concentration of these components.

Try adding 1 drop each of Thyme, Lemon and Rosemary to the water in an oil burner to help create a 'germ-free zone' during times of family ills. Blend 2 drops of Thyme, 3 drops of Geranium and 1 drop of Palmarosa in a teaspoon of Peach Kernel oil. Use as a body massage oil to help you get back on your feet after illness or if you are feeling run-down.
