Other types of Balsam Peru
Many other products sold as “Balsam Peru essential oil” are actually thick, liquid resinoids rather than true distilled essential oils. The color of these resinoids is very dark (almost black) and the aroma does not have much vanilla smell. Balsam Peru liquid resinoid is much cheaper to produce than the true Balsam Peru Essential Oil which we sell. Today, we know that the resinoid is a significant cause of sensitization reactions and should not be used on the skin.
