Styrax resinoid essential oil,

The Storax trees(Styrax) are a plant genus within the Storax tree family (Styracaceae). With 120 to 150 species, it is the most species-rich genus in this family. The Styrax species occur in all areas of the family: Most species originate from East Asia, many also from tropical South America or Mexico. One species, the Storax tree(Styrax officinalis), is also found in Asia Minor, in the eastern Mediterranean region, and with another subspecies in California. Individual locations are also known from Italy.

Storax (Latin: storax; Greek: στύραξ, stúrax), often sold commercially as styrax, is a natural resin isolated from the injured bark of Liquidambar orientalis Mill. (Asia Minor) and Liquidambar styraciflua L. (Central America) .

Storax has a pleasant, floral-purple, leathery, balsamic scent. Storax and its derivatives (resin, essential oil, absolute) are used as flavorings, fragrances and in medicines (monk’s balm).
