The resin is collected from incisions made on the trunk of trees more than 7 years old. It comes in the form of solid but fragile pieces of a dark brown or white.

It was traditionally used by indigenous tribes as a purifier, regenerating and promoting the decongestion of the respiratory tract. Today, many dermatological or respiratory balms use it a lot. Rich in sweet and caramelized vanilla notes, its fragrance will allow you to make compositions with sweet, spicy and oriental notes.
