"Perfection! Perfectly thick and syrupy, gorgeously heady scent. Couldn't ask for a better Benzoin EO! -Amazon Customer
"Five stars! as promised." - C. Stager
"This benzoin is great. Smells just as I expected it to - a bit like vanilla. I warmed the bottle in a bowl of hot water and mixed it with some warmed coconut oil to make a scented balm I use almost everyday. For those unfamiliar with benzoin, it’s very thick and sticky on its own so it’s best to cut with something if you’re going to apply it to your skin." - M. Watts
"Excellent resin. This is an excellent product. I use this in a psoriasis salve. You will need to pop off the dropper since it's too thick to go through the drop." - Marcia R.
