Black Storax Resin
Adam Michael has to say this “Black Storax from Anatolia (Turkey) is utterly exquisite material that exudes sweet powdery vanilla notes throughout. This material effortlessly transports my mind to some far flung exotic country in the early hours of the morning, greeted with a warm air and a gentle breeze of this scent constantly washing over me. Extracted from the leaves and twigs, a must for using on an oil burner** and a must for tincturing as the vanilla notes are far more pronounced than you would ever find within the essential oil of storax (not styrax) as it is different starting material, a different chemistry and subsequently an entirely different aroma.”
Botanical Name: Liquidambar orientalis
** At Hermitage Oils should you wish to burn the material neat we would recommend burning the material on an oil burner opposed to using charcoal disks. If you follow this recommendation we also advise placing a piece of foil in the well of your oil burner and then laying the resin on top. This prevents lots of mess and cleaning after use and by using an oil burner you get to enjoy much more of the aroma of the resin than when using charcoal disks.
