Benzoin has been used since ancient times as a soothing aromatic incense, and to drive out evil spirits. Today it is most commonly used in the form of Friars' Balsam - an inhalation for coughs, colds, flu and sore throats.
Benzoin comes from a Birch-like tree growing up to 20 feet high.  The bark, when deliberately cut (worked), produces white sap which turns into a hard, brittle, yellowish-brown resin. The tree grows rapidly but is only "worked" after seven years. Benzoin resinoid is extracted from the resin using solvent extraction.
Pure Benzoin resinoid is very thick and difficult to pour. We have therefore diluted it at 50% in Benzyl benzoate for ease of use.
