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  Very unique!

I have yet to buy a vanilla oil...so when I read reviews that this one was similar I knew I wanted to try it first. It comes from a more unique plant and has a scent all it\'s own. It\'s very distinct and subtle, warm and mellowing.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

5.0 5  Comforting & Happy

So happy I found this on the New Arrivals section a while back. To me this smells equally like vanilla, cinnamon and woods; noticeable, but gentle. I have been loving it diffused with Tangerine, Lime, Spearmint, and Lavender. It creates such a sense of happiness and comfort for me. Looking forward to trying it in some fall and winter seasonal diffuser blends. A definite repurchase.

5.0 5  Hint of vanilla

So far I am loving Peru Balsam, it has a hint of vanilla that I just love. Currently using it in a soap recipe and it turned out wonderful, a drop in a 10ml roller ball with sweet orange is refreshing.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

5.0 5  Good sub for vanilla

I was interested in Peru Balsam when people said it had a vanilla-like scent. Since vanilla is becoming over-harvested, I wanted to try a substitute to add a sweet mellow note to blends. Peru Balsam does just that. It is not an exact vanilla scent - there is a subtle smokiness that is really pleasant.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

5.0 5  What's not to like??

I love how great this oil smells! And with its high content of Benzyl Benzoate, it is a powerhouse against stress, fungus, and even head lice! I can\'t wait to diffuse it with the Kumquat oil I ordered at the same time. It should be a marriage made in heaven!

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
