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%.

5.0 5  Helps diffuse emotional upheaval

The description is totally accurate: "This wonderful aroma helps soothe out-of-control emotions, calms nervous tension, and can promote a tranquil environment." We love to diffuse it all by itself when tensions are high.

5.0 5  Fantastic

This is my new favorite oil....I use it constantly. It's got tons of vanilla upfront and seems to be very sweet & syrupy, but then you realize there's so much else gong on --- it's really dry, like Virginia Cedarwood, but also has the pine & balsam evergreen notes too. "Layers of scents" is absolutely the best way to describe this essential oil. It's incredibly balancing & centering. I combine it with Cedarwood to bring out the woodiness of Peru Balsam and it's heaven. I've been using that combo nonstop. If you're on the fence about Peru Balsam, GET IT! Probably one of the most complex oils I've ever come across.

3.0 5  Good

My wife got it in one of her orders and it smells good straight out of the bottle but I don't quite like it diffused. Hopefully I can find an oil to pair it with, but probably will use it more topically.

3.0 5  Just not for me

Peru Balsam falls into the 'Just not for me' category. I really really wanted to love this one. I have tried it in many blends and I just can't get it to work for me. Others I know love it. Everyone's nose is different. It definitely is a quality oil, as are all of my Plant Therapy oils.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
