Part of Plant: Tree resin (and cold pressed castor seed oil)

Chemical Constituents – Coniferyl benzoate, benzoic acid, benzyl benzoate

NOTE: Extraction Method – Resin is released from the tree when the bark is incised. Pure Benzoin is a solid resin at room temperature therefore it is gently heated and combined with Castor Seed Oil (Ricinus communis) to render it more mobile in a concentration of 1:4. This is a much nicer and much more natural alternative to the commonly available mixture with propylene glycol.

A note about Castor seed oil: Castor oil helps to lock in moisture, protect the skin and prevent damage by the elements and environmental toxins. The Romans used this oil to fade age spots, moles and blemishes, so is excellent in skin care.
