Styrax Essential oil Honduras
Odor: Slightly balsamic with a touch of bitter almond
Use: A monumental tree that grows in the Honduran rainforests, Liquidambar styraciflua is famous for its elegant foliage in the fall, when its deciduous leaves with long petioles become adorned with copper, purple, and scarlet hues. From the Hamamelidaceae family of witch hazels, it is found mainly in the dense forests of the Olancho Mountains in Honduras. Beneath its cracked brown bark, liquidambar hides its fragrant treasure: styrax. This precious amber resin flows down the trunk when it is wounded. To harvest styrax, incisions 15cm long by 4cm deep are made in the tree’s trunk by the collectors to create a cavity into which the precious resin will flow. After one month, the styrax is harvested and filtered before being distilled or extracted using ethanol, yielding styrax essential oil and resinoid, respectively. Slightly balsamic with a touch of bitter almond, styrax essential oil reveals a spicy cinnamon quality. A delicate woodiness distills resin accents.

Further information about IOFI can be found on its website (www.iofi.org).
