Balsam of Peru Essential Oil
Balsam of Peru trees thrive mainly along the Balsam Coast where El Salvador meets the Pacific Ocean, and is often planted as a shade tree on coffee plantations. It has a rich, vanilla-like aroma, making it an affordable substitute in natural perfumery when a sweet vanilla note is desired. Our Balsam of Peru oil is a light amber color, easy to pour and completely soluble in fixed carrier oils. It makes a great fixative in natural perfumery.
Therapeutically, Balsam of Peru has been used traditionally for a multitude of skin disorders, rheumatism, respiratory conditions, and as an antiseptic and fungicidal.
- A Favorite.... Review by Michele
- One of my most favorite oils from Eden. Very rich and smooth, almost edible quality. I love blending a few drops into my massage oil products (Posted on 2/28/13)
- Delectable Base Note Review by Gorosheeta
- This Balsam of Peru Oil has a creamier, sweeter vanilla-like scent. Since ordering and receiving it, it has become my go-to base note when I want to create a foody fragrance with a round finish. It has a light finish that sticks around for hours. (Posted on 2/20/13)
