Benzoin is a wonderful all-in-one oil that aids digestion and reduces stress, besides that it can be used to soothe dry, cracked skin, soothe the body, calm the mind, and treat minor injuries.
Benzoin essential oil comes from tropical ingredients with pale green leaves and hard nut fruit. An incision is made into the bark of the tree to extract the material that will produce the oil. The extracted sap from the incision is reddish brown in color and then produced by steam distillation.
