Dilute at a percentage of 0.6% of the finished blend, 1ml of essential oil (approx. 4-5 drops) to 100ml of carrier oil. Do not use undiluted on the skin. 


Blend with other calming oils and let the comforting scent of Benzoin wash over you.


Blend with a carrier oil of your choice to create a relaxing massage oil blend. We love Sweet Almond (#215) and Grapeseed (#210).

Top tip

As Benzoin is a viscous oil, you may need to warm it slightly to improve the rate of flow from the bottle. To do this, you can rub the bottle between your hands or simply stand the whole bottle in a little warm water for a few minutes.

Beauty Hack

Can be used in your homemade formulations like soaps, candles and other self-care products.

As with any new product always conduct a patch test before first use.

Consult your doctor or midwife before using during pregnancy.

Extraction method

The oil is extracted from the sticky resin from the Styrax Benzoin tree. The extract is extremely thick and viscous so we dissolve it in Propylene Glycol to make it more suitable for aromatherapy uses.
