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%.

Woody vanilla scent, helps with allergy & cold congestion & runny noses when diffused, and blends beautifully with many of my favorite oils. An all-around win for my oil of the month subscription and will definitely be ordering when my bottle runs low!

5.0 5  I finally got around to ordering.

I have been reading the benefits of Peru Balsam and how so many people love it. So, I just had to order it. It was great in the diffuser, and I could feel my sinuses open up. I also really like the smell, especially the touch of spice.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

1.0 5  Disappointed

I so wanted to like this 1. It was on my wishlist for a while. I already own vanilla oleoresin Which is compared to this oil in scent. But because vanilla O is hard to blend I thought I would try this Peru balsam. At first the scent is not badbut after a few seconds it leaves a horrible after scent which is pugnant and consuming andnot in a good way. I\'m sure some will not mind it but I it was too much for me.

recommend  No, I wouldn't recommend this to a friend.
