The benzoin essential oil finds its use in the field of medicine and incense applications since the time of the Ancient Greeks. Benzoin also goes by the name of gum benzoin, gum benjamin,  and benjamin.The tree from which Benzoin resin is obtained is called Styrax benzoin. This tree was originated in Vietnam and Laos and have also been identified to be grown around  Java, Sumatra as well as Malaysia. The benzoin is a gum resin that releases from the bark after tapping and this process can take up to 15 to 20 years. The resin is yellowish when it exudes from the bark and eventually, it becomes brownish-red after the process of thickening and hardening. The resin is cleaned and is available in the powdered form. When this powder is mixed with alcohol, it is referred to as tincture of benzoin. There are two forms of tincture available: simple and compound but the latter one is too strong to be applied on the skin and neither can be used for other purposes attributed to an essential oil. The principal constituents of the benzoin essential oil are benzoic acid, benzyl benzoate, benzaldehyde, cinnamic acid, coniferyl benzoate, and vanillin. Vanillin is the prime component in the aromatherapy and related incense applications majorly contributing to the vanilla like essence of benzoin essential oil.
