Extracted from resin of the Styrax Benzoin tree in Thailand that grows to 20 feet. Pretty interesting on how it's gathered, cuts are made in the tree, the resin seeps out, becomes hard and then it's harvested! Used in incense and also used for fumigation back in the ole days!

Has a sweet, warm, vanilla-like aroma and blends well with: Bergamot, Coriander, Frankincense, Juniper, Lavender, Lemon, Myrrh, Orange, and Sandalwood.

Raises and uplifts moods.

Anti-depressant, Anti-flatulent (relaxes muscle of stomach/intestines to allow gas to pass, aids in digestion), Arthritis, Astringent (tones muscle and skin), bronchitis, chapped skin, coughing, disinfectant (when burned the smoke disinfects or applied on skin), laryngitis, stress. Can be used as a deodorant, it even kills the bacteria/germs that cause odors. Relaxes airways and can be used whenever tension leads to a tight chest or restricted breathing. Warning: sensitivity, dermatitis
