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 Part: Lacerated: Lacerated Wood
Flashpoint: 200ºF +

Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Charlemagne! I'm sorry you thought this fragrance had a weak scent. We found the Balsam Peru Essential Oil to be strong when used at .8 oz per pound of cold process soap using our Handy Dandy Fragrance Calculator. If you're looking for scents with a stronger tobacco you may like Tobacco & Bay Leaf Fragrance Oil, Rustic Woods and Rum Fragrance Oil, or Black Tea Fragrance Oil.
