benzoin (resin) (resin (organic material), organic material, ... Materials (hierarchy name))

 

Note: A dark, pleasant smelling oleoresin obtained from trees of the genus Styrax, including S. benzoin and S. officinalis, growing in Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia. Benzoin resin was used by the 16th century as a spirit varnish for paintings. It is also used as a plasticizer for varnishes and lacquers, a perfume, an antiseptic, and a deodorizer. Benzoin resin is not the same as the chemical called "benzoin," which is a powder obtained from benzaldehyde. For a brown, sticky, aromatic resin obtained from trees of the genus Liquidambar, use "storax."

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Een donkere, prettig ruikende oleohars verkregen van bomen van het geslacht Styrax, waaronder S. benzoë en S. officinalis, deze groeien in Thailand, Maleisië en Indonesië. Benzoë hars werd gebruikt door de 16e eeuw als een gedistilleerde vernis voor schilderijen. Het wordt ook gebruikt als een weekmaker voor vernissen en lakken, een parfum, als een antiseptisch middel, en een deodorant. Benzoë hars is niet hetzelfde als de chemische stof genaamd "benzoë," dat is een poeder verkregen uit benzaldehyde. Voor de bruine, kleverige, aromatische hars verkregen van bomen van het geslacht Liquidambar, gebruik "styrax." 
Spanish ..... Resina balsámica utilizada fundamentalmente para tratar irritaciones de la piel, como fijador en perfumes y como incienso. Bálsamo fragante de color marrón grisáseo que se obtiene de la corteza de un árbol asiático.
