Peru Balsam Myroxylon pereira - El Salvador
Essential Oil - 15 mL
This essential oil is actually a dark, thick balsam obtained by vacuum. Peru Balsam has a vanilla-like, extremely sweet scent that can be almost intoxicating. It has been used as part of an anointing oil in Christianity when mixed with Olive oil. Peru Balsam is present in many skin creams and diaper rash balms because of its skin care abilities, and has been credited as helping coughs due to colds and flu, and bronchitis. This oil blends best with floral notes such as Ylang Ylang, and balsamic oils.
