Myroxylon pereirae is a large tree of approximately 80 ft in height. Every part of the tree, including the fibrous fruit, contains a resinous juice. The tree freely exudes the resin, upon contact with air. An essential oil is obtained from the crude by distillation, or a resin-free oil is produced from the crude balsam by high vacuum dry distillation. In its crude form, it solidifies into a dark brown semi-solid mass. Balsam (Peru) essential oil is a very viscous liquid, with a typically “balsamic” odor, somewhat resembling vanilla.
