Balsam Peru Genuine


Warm vanilla-like fragrance. Very thick, dark brown and slow pouring. At one time, Balsam Peru was used to combat scabies. Excellent fixative for perfumes. Soluble in alcohol and blends well with most essential oils. Not recommended for application to the skin.

Balsam Peru Genuine is most commonly extracted from the bark of the tree. The oil is very thick with a dark brown color to it. It has a very fresh and earthy aroma to it, similar to that of vanilla.

The aroma is very soothing, relaxing, and calming to the emotions. Great for people suffering from stress or anxiety.
