Product Brochure:

Peru Balsam Product Sheet

Peru Balsam originates from El Salvador and is extracted using steam distillation  from the balsam of the Myroxylon balsamum tree. Peru Balsam has a sweet, vanilla-like aroma with a subtle hint of cinnamon.

This wonderful aroma helps soothe out-of-control emotions, calms nervous tension, and can promote a tranquil environment. It can be used during times of respiratory congestion to help you breathe easier.

The main constituent of Peru Balsam is Benzoic Acid, which is well-known for it's abilities to keep minor scrapes and skin issues “clean”. It can help with dry or rough, reddened skin. Add it to your favorite body care products for a wonderful, natural perfume that is pleasing to the senses!

Place 3 drops of Peru Balsam and 3 drops of Orange Sweet in your AromaFuse Diffuser to promote a calm environment.

Add to body wash, lotion, body cream, or shampoo for a great perfume fragrance. We recommend a maximum dilution of 0.4%.

4.0 5  Very sweet and floral to me

I like this oil I guess, but it is very floral to my nose. It almost reminded me of being in a field of roses. Quite overwhelming even when diluted with other oils. I guess I could say a little goes a looooonnng way. I diffused it once and then diluted it with other oils and haven’t used since.

5.0 5  Adds warmth to other oil mixtures

Love the scent, tones down sharper scents to add a warmer ambiance to my home. I frequently add this oil or Vanilla EO to my homemade synergies. It's like the before/after 'missing touch'!

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
