Jawee Resin (Benzoin Blend) - Singapore
Brand : Scents of Earth
Jawee from Singapore is a wonderfully sweet, honey-smelling, balsamic resin blend containing copal, dammar gum and benzoin. It comes to us through the herb markets in Turkey, and for a long time its origins and content were somewhat of a mystery. After an overseas trip in 2009, we discovered that it comes from Singapore. The Arabic/English dictionaries translate Jawee as meaning Benzoin. (Note that Syrian Jawee is not technically a jawee as it is not benzoin. Nor does it come from Syria!)

This is my second order for Jawee. This resin seems slightly different from previous order but no less in quality. This Jawee is unique and a delight addition to my collection
