    Botanical Name: Styrax benzoin

    Plant Part: Resin

    Country of Origin: Siam

    Benzoin, also known as ‘gum benzoin’, is a traditional ingredient in incense with a sweet, delicate, balsamic aroma.  Benzoin is also found in skin creams for its antiseptic, healing and calming properties.  In perfumery, it is a popular fixative slowing the evaporation of the perfume to help it last longer.  It’s used as a flavoring in baked goods, chewing gum, soft candy and others.  It’s also used in personal care and pharmaceutical products.  We do not offer this product for internal consumption.

    Benzoin resin is collected by making an incision in the trunk of trees (in the genus Styrax) that allows the sap to escape.  As it flows, the fresh gum is yellowish but becomes a darker-red-brown color as it dries.  Our Benzoin is a 50% solution in Benzoin in Benzyl Benzoate.

    Its color is reddish-brown-caramel.  This is a viscous liquid.  INCI: Styrax benzoin.

    This product should be diluted before use.  If you’re not familiar with how to use or with its viscosity, please first order a very small quantity.

    A keeper
    I agree with the vanilla comment, however it also has a balsamic note. A great product to add a "warm" delicate scent.
    A must have scent.
    To me it smells like freshly baked rolls from a local bakery. Love the way Camden-Grey packaged it. This is a very thick oil, it comes in a clear glass jar. Thanks for the free samples, too.
    A must have for soft, lasting, citrus recipes
    When making citrus fragrances, this fixative pulls it all together into a nice a nice creamy blend. Warm, soft, vanilla.
    I like this scent and I am excited to use it as a fixative in my products! Adds a vanilla like scent!

    OUT OF STOCK ISSUES: If a customer orders a large quantity of a product and all of the product is not in stock when the order is entered into our system, once the new stock arrives we will ship separately whatever quantity we may owe the customer. Most of our restocking orders arrive at our warehouse 5-7 business days after we place a restocking order, sometimes sooner. Should the distiller or vendor inform us restocking will take longer than 7 business days, we’ll promptly notify the customer.

    Please note that we do not allow order cancellations for any reason and we don’t allow removal/cancellations of products which become partially or completely out of stock after the customer places an order.

    FO = fragrance oil

    Our containers are filled with products to where our commercial digital scales indicate the container should be filled. Some containers will be filled to the top, some will not.

    HOW OILS ARE DISPENSED: All our products are dispensed by weight. EO's in 8 oz. through 2 lbs. - amber plastic pharmaceutical-grade bottle. EO's in 5 and 10 lbs. - heavy duty plastic container w/pouring spout, the oil may remain inside the container at least 2 months. EO's in sizes of 25+ lbs. - industry-standard metal or plastic can with a pouring spout, the oil may remain inside the metal can indefinitely and up to 2 months in the plastic pail.
