Benzoin has been used for thousands of years in the East as a medicine and incense. In the West, it is best known in the form of compound tincture of Benzoin or Friars Balsam, used for respiratory complaints. Externally it is used for cuts and irritable skin conditions; internally traditionally used as a carminative for indigestion.

Like Myrrh and Frankincense, it is both soothing and stimulating. It is also very warming, and this makes it particularly helpful for colds, flu, coughs and  sore throats.
