Fleurs de l'arbre Styrax qui produit la résine de benjoin ; Des incisions sur le tronc s'écoulent des gouttes blanches de styrax liquide qui s'épaissit au contact de l'air. Ce baume est riche en acide benzoïque.
Le "Baume styrax" ou "Benjoin" a des propriétés antiseptiques, cicatrisantes, expectorantes.
Il est utilisé en parfumerie surtout comme fixateur, son odeur apporte une note sucrée, légèrement vanillée et balsamique. Il entre aussi dans la fabrication du "Papier d'Arménie"
