Tonka Beans- Dipteryx odorata
(Organic) (Whole Bean) Available in 1 oz
Aromatic in nature, tonka beans contain coumarin which is the chemical compound that is responsible for its sweet, vanilla-like fragrance, reminiscent of the herb sweet woodruff. Coumarin is banned as a food additive in the United States and therefore the tonka bean is employed externally for its pleasing aroma. Tonka beans’ warming scent is a favorite in incense blends, perfumes, aromatherapy, potpourris, and other topical applications. It is often incorporated into incense blends with warming resins such as benzoin, copal, frankincense, and myrrh.
