Is your Balsam of Peru thick?
Many components play a part in the viscosity (thickness) of an oil. Thicker oils typically come from the resin or root of the tree. Some oils grow thicker and more potent as they age. Because essential oils are extracted from living plants that do not follow an exact chemical formula or an exact growing pattern, each batch of the same oil can vary as well.
If you’re having problems with your oil dropping from the bottle, here are some quick tips:
1. Droppers typically work best when held horizontally (to the side) instead of vertically (upside down).
2. Warm the bottle by holding in hands, or by placing in a bowl of warm water. (To prevent damaging the label, put the bottle in a ziplock bag before placing in water.)
3. Widen the holes on the orifice reducer with a sterile pin.
4. Take the orifice reducer off of the bottle and use a pipette.
Combine all ingredients. Add to a warm/hot bath and soak for 20 minutes. For additional comfort, dissolve oils in 1 cup Epsom or Sea Salt and add to bath water.
Red Hot Lip Scrub
In a bowl, mix all ingredients together thoroughly. Store in a small container with a tight lid. To use, apply a small amount of mixture to your lips with your finger and scrub in a circular motion. Rinse off completely.

The oil is fragrant, and definitely smells like vanilla, but leans toward cooler fragrances. This oil doesn’t blend well with sandalwood or cinnamon or frankincense. Maybe blue cypress or spearmint. Anyway, it wasn’t for me because I love warmer fragrances and blends.
The smell is unbelievable definitely that vanilla aroma. Strange name for a vanilla scent. The only thing I don't like is that it is extremely thick like it doesn't even pour out of the bottle but I've read that with every profiles and from any company. I haven't used it yet and I don't know that I would use it in my diffuser it might be too thick I'm not sure
I made a salve for a skin rash on my elbows with Balsam of Peru including coconut oil and Beeswax. I like the light vanilla scent. It did help with my rash. The oil is very thick, even after inserting the bottle in hot water. My only option was to take off the plastic dipper and add the drops I needed to my salve. I don't think I will diffuse this oil because I don't want it to clog up my diffuser. Otherwise I will buy again when I run out of it.
