Myroxylon Pereirae Resin Oil or Peru Balsam Essential Oil come from the resin of the grand
evergreen Myroxylon Pereirae tree in Central and South America. It is
considered an excellent emollient, meaning that it can form a barrier over skin
that traps water inside, helping to prevent moisture loss. For this reason,
Peru Balsam is an effective addition to formulas intended for soothing chapped hands
and feet or chaffed skin.
In folklore, Balsam of Peru oil was thought to attract prosperity
and happiness and promote inventiveness and vision. The aroma is warm and
comforting with the ability to ease nervous tension. It can be described as
rich and balsamic with a sweet vanilla-like undertone. Try diffusing it to and add some sweetness and healing
energy into the room.
