Benzoin gum - also known by its botanical name of Sytrax benzoin is one of the many useful quality bulk herbs that are available with an interesting history.
Also known as "gum benjamin," Benzoin Gum is in fact not a gum at all, and technically not even among the family of true herbs, but a type of resin that is derived from the bark of certain trees growing in Southeast Asia and Indonesia. It is nonetheless considered to be among naturopathic medicines that include natural herbs. Fragrant Benzoin Gum, has long been used in perfumes and incense.
Those who keep bulk organic herbs on hand for various purposes should have a supply of Sytrax benoin in addition to other dried herbs. While there are many historical uses, no claim is made about the curative properties of organic herbs and other natural compounds like Sytrax benzoin.
Purification, prosperity, soothing tension, dispelling anger, diminishing irritability, relieving stress & anxiety, and overcoming depression. Promotes generosity and concentration. Good to burn while using the Tarot or for success in intellectual matters. Smoulder for purification. An incense of benzoin, cinnamon and basil is said to attract customers to your place of business.
