Product Description

Benzoin Essential Oil

 

Oil properties

Benzoin oil has a sweet, warm and vanilla-like aroma and is golden brown in color, with a treacle-like viscosity.

 

Origin of benzoin oil

The tree is from Java, Sumatra and Thailand and grows to 8 meters (20 feet). Deep incisions are made in the trunk of the tree, from which the grayish colored sap exudes. When the resinous lump becomes hard and brittle, it is collected from the bark.

 

Benzoin, also known as gum Benjamin, is one of the classic ingredients of incense.

 

It is also used as a fixative in the perfume industry.

 

Benzoin oil is extracted from the resin of a seven years and older tree by solvent extraction and yields about 65-85 % oil.

 

Chemical composition

Benzoin oil's main chemical components are benzoic, cinnamic acids, benzyl benzoate, benzoic aldehyde, vanillin and coniferyl benzoate.

Although essential oils blend well with each other, benzoin oil goes particularly well with bergamot, coriander, frankincense, juniper, lavender, lemon, myrrh,orange, petitgrain, rose and sandalwood.
