Balsam Peru has a pleasant vanilla like aroma popular in in perfumery. It helps create classic Oriental scents and has excellent fixative properties to hold the aroma. Balsam Peru is an extract from the bark of a South and Central American tree. It is not a "true" essential oil but a thick resin.
In aroma therapy it may be beneficial for respiratory conditions when diffused into the air. It loosens phlegm and helps clear the lungs for easier breathing. It is energizing, stimulating, uplifting and improves circulation and awareness.
Balsam Peru has strong anti-inflammatory ability for aching joints. It can be diluted and rubbed on the area twice daily to reduce the inflammation causing pain.

Balsam Peru may benefit skin but is rarely used in a full body massage because of the possibility of sensitivity or allergic reaction especially in young people with strong immune systems. (A patch test can be done to test for sensitivity.) It is not recommended for diseased or damaged skin. However, if there is no allergy, it can be diluted and may be beneficial for minor cuts, eczema, dry skin, dandruff, rashes or soothe mature skin. Balsam Peru has an antiseptic quality to protect against infection.
*Balsam Peru is not easily oil soluble. Warming this extract and blending in other essential oils in small amounts just before blending may be possible.
Note: Most essential oils cannot be taken internally, but even when they can, essential oils are highly concentrated and require dilution, special training and caution that Aroma & More does not yet provide. You can never drink any essential oils at 100% strength or diluted in water-based liquids.
Caution: Use in small amounts of less than 0.4% if applying to the skin. Moderate risk of skin sensitivity or allergy. Not for use on diseased or damaged skin. Essential oils can be harmful if used improperly. Information is provided for educational purposes only. It is up to the customer to determine if the product is right for their intended purpose.

If applying to skin essential oils must be diluted correctly and Aroma & More recommends testing on a small area of skin to check for reaction before attempting a full body massage.
