Balsams

Semifluid, resinous, and fragrant liquids of vegetable origin, usually trees, which are often composed chiefly of resins, volatile oils, cinnamic acid, and benzoic acid. The balsams mostly commonly seen in medicine, largely historically, are the balm of gilead, balsam of peru, and tolu balsam.
