If you can remember visiting the family doctor 40 or more years ago, you may remember the ubiquitous jar of "tincture of benzoin" kept on an office shelf for treating upper respiratory infections. The benzoin tree is native to the tropical reaches of eastern Asia. The resin, also called gum benjamin, ranges in color from pale yellow to red brown and is harvested by making triangular incisions into the treeÍs bark to establish a flow, which then hardens into lumps.
Benzoin has a grounding and stabilizing effect. Used in tinctures, it can be used as preservative for most oil blends. We use 100% natural benzoin tincture as a preservative for all of our oil blends.
