Balsam Essential Oil

Balsam essential oil has a rich, sweet, balsamic, vanilla scent. Crude balsam is obtained from the Balsam Tree. It solidifies into a brown, semi-solid, thick liquid. The essential oil is produced from the crude balsam by high vacuum dry distillation

Why Auroma 100% pure, all natural Balsam essential Oil from The Aromatherapy Place: Unscruplous producers often adulterate their essential oils. Auroma maintains strict guidelines to ensure that all plants used for essential oil distillation are grown wild, in unpolluted areas, or are organically grown, and further ensures that the length of time between harvesting and the distillation process is kept to an absolute minimum. .
