Benzoin Absolute Styrax tonkinensis (1160)

Benzoin has a warm, vanilla-like aroma, which provides an emotionally comforting quality. It is sometimes used in a massage blend for soothing aching muscles, but may have sensitizing properties. It provides respiratory and digestive support and may be best used in a diffuser. It blends particularly well with Rose.

This absolute is extracted using ethanol. No ethanol is added to the product but small amounts are present as a result of the extraction process.

This is a pure therapeutic-quality aromatherapy absolute from Thailand, and is obtained from the resin.

I find Oshadhi oils to be simply exquisite. Their fragrances are so rich and full bodied. It is easy to immediately discern the difference their insistence on extraction by slow distillation makes. The larger molecules make the oils like beautifully aged, smooth fine wines! Last week I ordered 1ml o ...

I had the pleasure of meeting Jonathan and the company Oshadhi a few years ago at a therapy event and subsequently since our paths have crossed many times.
