Balsam oil or Roghan Balsan is derived from the tree of Balisan in Saudi Arabia-Badr Region, which is a large tropical tree having straight smooth trunk & beautiful foliage including very fragrant flowers. Resinous juice for making the oil is obtained from exposed lacerated wood after strips of bark are removed. It is initially collected in form of a dark brown or amber semi-solid mass and later distilled to achieve pure oil extract. COMMON NAMES
