Pure Loban (Gum Benzoin) Resin

Pure, AAA grade loban resin. 25 g pack.

Loban, also known as gum benzoin is a deliciously fragrant balsamic resin obtained from the bark of several species of trees in the genus Styrax. Pure loban is burnt in places of worship to create a holy, sanctified atmosphere. It is also considered to be an anti-depressant and mood enhancer, as well as an effective insect repellant. 

 It is a common ingredient in incense-making and perfumery because of its vanilla ice-cream aroma and fixative properties.
