  • Benzoin is an aromatic, evergreen tree growing from 8m - 34m tall with a slightly buttressed bole that can be from 10cm - 100cm in diameter. The plant excretes a fragrant balsam on being bruised. This species is the only source of the fragrant Benzoin sumatra resin. Traditionally, this has been gathered from the wild for local medicinal use. It first gained popularity in Europe towards the end of the 16th century, and now finds extensive use worldwide as a sacred incense and in the flavour, fragrance and pharmaceutical industries. It is probably best known as an ingredient of the herbal preparation 'Friar's Balsam’. The Shamans in the Batak highlands, as well as in Sumatra and Java, burn Benzoin Sumatra resin to help enter a trance state during healing ceremonies.
