Research Facts
Tincture of benzoin is a pungent solution of benzoin resin in ethanol. A similar preparation called Friar's Balsam or Compound Benzoin Tincture contains Cape aloes or Barbados aloes and storax resin. Friar's balsam was invented by Joshua Ward around 1760. It is a tincture to be ingested, or put into boiling water and inhaled. It is used for antiseptic, internal disinfectant for urine, expectorant (thins out phlegm in lungs and helps coughs it up), bronchitis, laryngitis, tuberculosis, and other chest/lung conditions.It soothes and relieves irritation, such as canker sores as well as in the airway.
