Styrax benzoin is a tree native to the topical climates of southeast Asia, China, and Indonesia. Benzoin resin has been used for centuries for its warming, vanilla-like aroma. Benzoin gum powder is often used in perfume and incense blends for its pleasing scent but can also be employed as a stabilizer and fixative.



Benzoin made its way to England in the 15th century. Brought over by spice traders, the benzoin was ground into powder and used in perfumes worn by Queen Elizabeth I. Soon, the “incense from Java,” as it was called, began to be used therapeutically. This oil has a thick, sticky consistency with a sweet, vanilla-like aroma. Famous as a fixative in perfumes and colognes as a base note. This oil is also wonderful for grounding.



In magical folklore, benzoin is used to purify and is often an ingredient in purification incenses. It is an excellent prosperity resin, is is used in incenses to attract customers to a place of business.
