Solvent extraction (Ethanol)

Note Classification



Soft, sweet, warm, vanilla-like


Our organic benzoin resin oil is extracted from Styrax tonkinensis resin and blended with ethanol to improve usability. This oil has a thick, sticky consistency with a sweet, vanilla-like aroma. As a base note, or fixative, this oil is wonderful for grounding perfume blends. It combines well with other resinous oils such as frankincense and sandalwood, as well as floral or spiced notes.


1/2 oz., 1 oz., and 2 oz. essential oils are packaged in amber glass bottles with drop reducers for easy application. Larger sizes are packaged in amber screw cap bottles and do not come with reducers or droppers.

Blends Well With

Black pepper, copaiba balsam, coriander, cypress, frankincense, ginger, jasmine, juniper, lemon, myrrh, rose, sandalwood

Herbal Miscellany

Benzoin is an excellent fixative for perfume and soap blends adding a rich, sweet note.


Oil Specific: Avoid while pregnant. Not for internal use.
General: As with all essential oils, never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children. If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).
