Benzoin Liquid Resin comes from the Styrax benzoin, a small tree originally native to Indonesia that grows throughout Eastern and Southeastern Asia. Its name is derived from an Arabic term that means "frankincense from Java," and indeed, this oil carries many of the properties of frankincense. (The oil is very thick yet mobile, and does not drop through our standard european dropper bottles. In that regard, we package this one with a treatment pump.) Like frankincense, benzoin is obtained from the resin that seeps out from the bark of its native tree. It is commonly used in cosmetics, candles, and perfumery, and has been used as incense for thousands of years as part of religious ritual. Within aromatherapy, its primary uses are for skin care and as a relaxant and anti-inflammatory.


Specific Benefits of Benzoin Liquid Resin as follows:

Relaxing and anti-depressant... Benzoin Liquid Resin has powerful sedating and relaxing properties. It is recommended as a cure for insomnia, and also to help relieve depression and anxiety. 
Astringent and toning... Benzoin Liquid Resin is astringent, which means it helps tone up both skin and muscles. It can be used regularly for face lifting and for reducing wrinkles.
