Gurjun Balsam essential oil produced by steam distillation of resin gum from the Dipterocarpus turbinatus tree in Indonesia is prized in natural perfumery as an inexpensive fixative.  Gurjun Balsam has the ability to round out rough edges and bring aromatic notes together in a seamless cohesive manner.  Sometimes referred to as East Indian Copaiba Balsam but there is no botanical relationship between Gurjun and Copaiba Balsam.  There is however an ever so slight aromatic sweet balsamic similarity.  Gurjun Balsam is an excellent extender for woody aromatic oils and is often used in natural perfumery for that purpose.  Gurjun Balsam is often reached for to add the missing link in perfume bouquets and accords.

The aromatherapy benefits of Gurjun Balsam essential oil are primarily respiratory related.  Although noted a cicatrisant essential oil we recommend Cistus essential oil for that purpose.  Consider blending with filtered Foraha (Tamanu) carrier oil for bedsores and inflamed skin conditions.

Surprise Treasure
I had no idea what to expect of this one and ordered it because I love resins and because I was in need of a fixative. It was one of my favorite finds of 2016. It is the most lovely, sweet and yet intriguing scent one could hope for. Woodsy but also balsamic. Just perfect as a base for perfume or an inexpensive but useful ingredient for blends. I will be back to buy a larger size!

This Gurjun essential oil has a lighter scent than many resin/gum essential oils, which is exactly what I was looking for! Cannot wait to try it in some of my perfumes that need a lighter fixative, and think it will enhance some that are just missing a little something to make them pop! Thanks LGB for another GREAT oil!! :)

Fresh and potent
I have had sample from two different places. This one was the freshest. You can feel the potency and deep aromatic therapy of the resin!
