Benzoin essential oil is golden-colored, aromatic, thick, and a resinous oil obtained from the Benzoin tree whose scientific name is Styrax benzoin. [1] [2] Its chief components are benzyl benzoate, benzoic acid, benzaldehyde, coniferyl benzoate, cinnamic acid, and vanillin. This last component gives it a vanilla-like aroma.

Benzoin oil has been in use for thousands of years. Instances have been found of its use in some of the oldest civilizations of the world, particularly in their religious ceremonies and medicines, mainly due to its antidepressant, disinfectant, and aromatic properties.
