    Balsam Essential Oil
    (Clarksville, TN, US) | January 10th, 2011
    This oil is the vanilla that I have been looking for! I wanted to add a vanilla scent to my soaps, but did not want to use vanilla extract - Peru Balsam essential oil smells so very vanilla! Clean and sweet at the same time!
    Great price

    After pricing many online essential oil stores, found that Camden Grey had the best deal. When I recieved my oil was very pleased with the quality of the oil. I will be back for more!
    Peru Balsam - A Wonderful Fixer!
    (Pensacola, FL, US) | April 14th, 2010
    Peru Balsam is a wonderful fixative, meaning it will help hold the scent of other oils in the blend. With it's intoxicatingly wonderful vanilla scent, it compliments and is pleasing to the olfactory system. Peru Balsam is a must for any serious oil designer! Use it with scents for soaps, bath oils, powders, aromatherapy, anything! It imparts a wonderful base scent and it has a strong scent, so a little goes a long way!
    "has a vanilla-type scent"
    (Iowa City, IA, US) | February 3rd, 2010
    I ordered this oil because I read in the description that is has a "has a vanilla-type scent" and I was intrigued. In my opinion the description is a massive understatement! I was shocked how much this one smells like vanilla, and I was very excited to start using it in my aroma recipes. I highly recommend this one to anyone who likes the scent of vanilla.

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.
