Resinoids are plant extractions, much like essential oils, but come from naturally resinous plant matter (such as balsams, gum resins, and natural oleoresins). The resulting product typically contains predominantly non-volatile, resinous compounds. Resinoids maintain their scent much longer, and can preserve other essential oils. That is why they are widely used in the perfume industry.
Benzoin is an oil extracted from the Styrax Benzoin tree. It is a common ingredient in incense, perfumes, food flavoring agents and also has medicinal value as a stypic, antiseptic and an inhalant.
It has a sweet vanilla-like scent due to its vanillin content. It is usually resinous and thick, but this version is diluted in coconut oil for easier applications.
Keep out of reach of children and pets
Keep all oil bottles tightly closed, cool, and away from direct sunlight.
Do not place essential oils directly in the eyes, ears, or nose.
Dilute properly before topical applications.
Do not take orally without proper saftey precautions and the supervision of licensed physician or aromatherapist.
