Peru Balsam essential oil is distilled from a resinous substance obtained from the Myroxylon Balsamum tree. The aroma of the oil is a unique sweet and spicy combination and is used in food flavorings. Peru Balsam is included in many medicinal products for helping with dry socket, hemorrhoids, thoothache, wound healing substances, and cough medicine. Physically, Peru Balsam essential oil is used by aromatherapists for assisting with respiratory conditions. The oil is an expectorant, which allows the lungs expel any phlegm, clearing the airway and providing relieved breathing. Peru Balsam also has anti-inflammatory properties and may be used to reduce inflammation within cramped muscles. Peru Balsam is extremely soothing to the senses, and may reduce stress levels and mental exhaustion. For the skin, Peru Balsam must be diluted by about 2% and massaged into the skin to smoothen broken and damaged skin.
