What is Amber Resin?
Amber is a composite of many resins and herbs, created in India by one of several master formulators. Each has their own secret recipe which is handed down through the generations and is guarded as a family trade secret.
Amber resin is a solid crystalline fragrance made from a combination of many resinoids and oleoresins (plant secretions) such as myrrh, gum frankincense, gum styrax, benzoin, sal tree, labdanum and other aromatic compounds. These ingredients are sourced from the tropical sub-forests of India and Africa. They are crushed, mixed, carefully heated and cooled to form the crystalline amber. Amber resin can be used as a solid perfume, as incense when used in an oil warmer, and burned over charcoal tablets.
Typically, Amber is a combination of Benzoin or Styrax Resin with the addition of honey, myrrh, vanilla and/or other aromatic spices in a base of Beeswax. It is soft and a little oily to the touch and very aromatic. The fragrance of amber is characteristically defined as a sweet, woody earthy note from blends of various resins, with a touch of vanilla which give the amber their characteristically sweet aroma. They may also contain other oils.
Aromatic amber is also know by the names: India Amber, Himalayan Amber, Omber, Ambergris (pseudo).
