Peru Balsam Oleoresin

Myroxylon balsamum var. pereirae

Peru balsam oleoresin is a thick, dark, molasses-like product with a scent like warm vanilla, cinnamon, and caramel. It has a strong affinity for the skin. While it’s insoluble in fatty oils and water, it dissolves in alcohol (and somewhat in castor oil). Our Peru balsam oleoresin is wildcrafted in the forests of El Salvador. Over a period of 10–15 days, our producer taps the trees three times, collecting the resin in a sustainable process. (We also carry Peru balsam-infused jojoba for an easy-to-use version of this product.)

I haven't used the Peru Balsam in a blend yet - I'm just enjoying opening the bottle and smelling the aroma! It's so soothing and pleasing.

I agree with the description very dark and thick..I used it in a perfume with vanilla. I like the smell, I get a hint of vanilla but deeper like a molasses or honey.
