Tonka Beans (Dipteryx odorata) - Venezuela

Scents of Earth $6.75

Tonka Beans (whole) (Dipteryx odorata) from Venezuela are seeds of the large tropical tonka tree that have the fragrance reminiscent of newly mowed hay or a freshly cut meadow. They have a high coumarin content, which provides a sweet, herb-like fragrance. Tonka beans were and may still be used as an alternative to vanilla and are used to flavor tobaccos and snuffs (though not for food use in the US). The essential oil is widely used in the perfume industry. Tonka beans are often used in sachets and potpourri. They are said to lighten one's mood and encourage emotional balancing. Use in small amounts.
