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.
