Why is our Benzoin 40% oil so great?

The two main types of Benzoin are Siam (styrax tonkinensis) and Sumatra (styrax benzoin). The Sumatran type is cheaper to produce and coarser than the superior Siam type which we stock. This excellent quality Benzoin has been sustainably sourced from Siam.

To source the best essential oil suppliers, we travel the world and only opt for oils from controlled, sustainable sources, that have little or no negative impact on the environment.

None of our products are tested on animals and all are free from GM materials.
