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  Smells Sooo Good

I didn't know I would enjoy this oil so much! It has such a wonderful smell to it. I got it because of the reviews where they said it had notes of cinnamon and vanilla. I didn't have an expectation, but at first sniff it definitely does smell like warm vanilla, cinnamon, and wood smoke. It smells divine when diffused on a cold day!

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
