Liquid Amber otherwise known as Liquid Storax is often confused with and referred to as being Benzoin. This is a misconception that is most likely a result to a similarity in aroma but also their botanical names, being Storax and Styrax. In reality they are two very different plants. These days it is very hard to find a good quality Liquid Amber that hasn’t been over processed or watered down.
When raw its aroma is slightly spicy but when burned, the aroma is unforgettable! Generally Liquid Amber is burned on charcoal and has other resins or herbs added to it.
