Description of Gurjon Balsam Oil
Despite its name, Gurjun Balsam is actually a naturally-occurring oleoresin, not a balsam; the material is only produced by the tree after it has been lacerated or naturally damaged in some way. Gurjun Balsam oil is steam-distilled from this material, providing a cost-effective alternative to other balsam products, albeit with a much milder aroma. Despite this, Gurjun Balsam oil still carries an intense likeness to copaiba balsam, with a sweet and woody odor that retains a piney, balsamic dry down. The oil's aroma is extremely tenacious as well, capable of maintaining its uniformity across many different applications. This makes Gurjun Balsam a versatile component of soap perfumes, masking agents, and certain oriental fragrances.
