Benzoin Gum Resin – Wildharvested


Wildcrafted Benzoin Gum Resin (Styrax benzoin) is used for purification, better business, good luck and peace of mind.



Benzoin Gum Resin is used to purify, harmonize and invite good luck. Styrax benzoin is a tree native to the topical climates of southeast Asia, China, and Indonesia. Benzoin resin has been used for centuries for its warming, vanilla-like aroma. Benzoin gum powder is often used in perfume and incense blends for its pleasing scent and magical properties of bringing peace, harmony, happiness, luck, and love.

Benzoin has a vanilla-like aroma and ranges in color from pale yellow to red brown and is harvested by making triangular incisions into the tree’s bark to establish a flow, which then hardens into lumps when exposed to air and sunlight.

Suggested magical uses for Wildcrafted Benzoin Gum Resin:
