Balsam, Peru Essential Oil:  Aged for 3 years prior to selling to you, this essential oil improves with time, developing a richer, more dense sensual scent. This sweet, tobacco scent is reminiscent of a smoky vanilla. Though this essential oil smells delightful, it is considered a skin sensitizer (potentially causing allergies) so use sparingly in leave-on products. This blends well with Patchouli, Vanilla and Musk for a deeper richer scent. As an aromatherapy oil, Julia Lawless recommends it for Bronchitis, colds, coughing and the flu. This essential oil is kosher and lip balm safe at under .5% usage rate.

Distillation Method: High Vacuum Dry Distillation
Country of Origin: El Salvador
Botanical Name: Myroxylon Balsamum

Sweet Vanilla-like smell
For years I have been looking for a way to get vanilla-like smell in CP soaps naturally. Balsam of Peru did it. I added about 3/4 oz per pound of soap. The smell is great, but the next time I will do it a little bit stronger (1 oz per lb). So far everyone who smelled the soap loved the smell. I added the oil at light trace before adding colors - and did not notice any discoloration. Great product, will buy again!
