Benzoin of Siam resin has a sweet, vanilla-like, balsam and woody fragrance. It is known to be energizing, uplifing and stimulating. It porduces more smoke than many other resins so a little goes a long way. These fragrant Benzoin almonds - Styrax benzoides - come from Siam (Thailand). These are 1st Choice select benzoin almonds.

Benzoin resin has a sweet, balsamlike fragrance resembling vanilla. It does not have a very pleasing aroma by itself but when mixed with other ingredients, it develops into a wonderful aromatic pleasure. Long used since antiquity as an incense ingredient by many civilizations. Known in Europe during the middle ages as "Friar's Balsam".

The natural gum is collected from deep incisions made into the tree trunk; it hardens on exposure to the air and is collected. Benzoin is warm, relaxing and calming and as such is good to use in the evening mixed with sandalwood. It has been known to stimulate imagination and good for use in creative work.
