Amber is usually a combination of Liquid Benzoin or Styrax Resin with a touch of Vanilla in a base of Beeswax. It is soft and a little oily to the touch and gorgeously aromatic. There are many varieties of Amber such as Dark Amber (which is what ours is) which is sweet with a touch of spice, and Light Amber which is honey sweet. This Amber from India is not burned on charcoal like most "resins", rather it is left out. Its aroma is so strong that it will fill a room when placed in the beautiful Rosewood box included.
Because of it's divine fragrance, it has been considered as a sacred temple powder often referred to as "Nectar of the Gods" or "Ambrosia". Spiritually, Amber is used for meditation, healing, purification, luck, love, emotional and spiritual balancing and as an aphrodisiac.
Many people use this type of Amber as a solid perfume. Just take a tiny piece and rub it on your skin to enjoy the aroma all day long!
