Add to Wishlist

Waking up totally rested is one of life’s many treasures. Unfortunately, stress can rob us of a good night’s rest. Peru Balsam, with its woody and sweet aroma may help to carry us into sweet dreams.

 

Native to Central America, Peru Balsam is an evergreen tree that grows up to 120 feet and sprouts gorgeous fragrant flowers. The crude balsam of the tree is put through steam distillation to extract the essential oil. Its wonderfully soft aroma is often used in perfumes and is a great addition to floral blends.
