Balsam of Peru Essential Oil (Myroxylon balsamum) is also commonly known as Balsamum peruvianim and Black Balsam. Balsam of Peru Essential Oil has a medium‐strength rich, sweet, and balsamic aroma presenting a base fragrance note.

We included Balsam of Peru Essential Oil as part of the Rocky Mountain Oils Skin Care collection since the oil is incorporated into many skin care products. Natural perfumes often contain the oil due to its vanilla-like aroma. You’ll also find it as a fragrance component in soaps, detergents, creams and lotions, ointments and cosmetics. Balsam of Peru is suitable for most skin types, soothing the skin and unleashing your natural beauty. Be sure to dilute with a carrier oil before applying topically.

The oil also works great for direct inhalation and diffusion. Balsam of Peru may help bolster restful sleep and promotes a comforting effect on the emotions.

Balsam of Peru
Great smell. Yes, it is very thick, but it says in the description of the product that it is very thick. It blows my mind that some people will give a product a bad review when the company delivers exactly what is promised but because they couldn't be bothered to read the whole description, they blast it with a bad review. I own a business and this just totally infuriated me. So please read what you are buying before you buy it. That way when you get what you ordered there won't be any surprises. With that being said, it is a really great product from a really great company!

Gorgeous!
Smells like a combination of vanilla and cinnamon, and maybe a touch of ylang ylang. Very nice!

Great in skin serum
I use Balsam of Peru in facial serum, along with some exotic carrier oils and a variety of other EOs, depending on what I feel I need for any given week. I love how it smells on my face! It is a bit thick, but some oils are naturally thicker and/or stickier than others. I love that Rocky Mountain does not dilute or adulterate oils, instead providing nature's gifts in their purest form. I got some micro-pipettes and use tiny rubber bands to hold them to the sides of each bottle, making extraction and measurement of thick and very thin oils much easier.

Wonderful!
It's an awesome oil for so many things.....for all the people leaving negative reviews regarding the thickness/consistency issues, THIS IS HOW PERU BALSAM IS!!!! some brands are easier than others to use from the bottle, however, the frustration doesn't mean you can't still enjoy this oil... you can warm the bottle in a "double boiler" type water bath setting. Use very warm water, (I put bottle inside a baggie first as to not destroy the label) place bottle in top part of double boiler container..for a minute or two and voila!! It should flow from the bottle, drop after drop with no annoying pauses in between.just make sure u don't put it directly into the warm water without putting it in another bowl first, bc as we all know, heat destroys essential oils.

Balsam of Peru
it smells divine .. great product, but the thicker ones, like Balsam of Peru, Myrhh and Copaiba .. a few of my favorites, should have a nozzle dropper (like for eye drops), or a glass dropper bottle (one that has a long glass tube into the bottle) so they are easier to extract. I have to take out the plastic dropper top to use these three, for example .. vetiver too, etc .. the thick ones don’t work with the standard top ..

review Balsam of Peru
naturally some oils are thicker than others. This one is REALLY thick and I don't know how to get it out of the bottle without standing there for 5 minutes for one drip. Will it really disburse well with a carrier oil? Left a residue in the bottom of my diffuser. Having said all of that... I do really like it!
