Used primarily as fixatives in citrus-colognes, oriental perfumes, and floral bases. Tolu is among the most interesting modifiers for 'exotic' floral fragrances.

A native to Central America, the leaves and fruits of this slender & straight tree have been used by the indigenous tribes of Mexico and Central America. The sap, or balsam, comes mainly from the large trees which grow along the coast of El Salvador. The sap is extracted by tapping, similar to the tapping of rubber trees. A tree must be at least 20 years old before it can be tapped.

The resin has a fragrance of cinnamon when freshly harvested, the aged resin has the fragrance of vanilla and is highly prized. Tolu has a rich, sweet, balsamic, vanilla like scent.

Cautions:
Tolu can cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals.
External Use only.
Do NOT use undiluted on the skin.
Keep away from children & pets.
Store away from heat & light.
