Styrax benzoin

Properties and Uses:
The resin, called benzoin or gum benzoin, is used as incense, a fixative in perfumes, and is added to cosmetics to prevent fats turning rancid. It is an antiseptic treatment for cracked and chapped skin, and an expectorant for severe bronchitis. As part of friar's balsam, it soothes coughs and sore throats. Benzoin is used in aromatherapy, but may cause allergies.

Remark: Styrax officinale produces storax, the fragrant resin that is burned as incense.

Herbie’s Herbs tinctures are alcohol-based preparations macerated in 50% distilled cane sugar alcohol at a 1:2 ratio. Read more here

Compared to other methods, alcohol helps extract nearly all active constituents from a herb yielding stronger tinctures that require a lower dose to attain beneficial effects.

Alcohol eliminates the growth of bacteria and mold while preserving the valuable constituents resulting in a much longer shelf life.
