Uses & Effectiveness

Overview

Storax is an oily resin (balsam) obtained from the tree trunks of Liquidambar orientalis or Liquidambar styraciflua. It is used as medicine.

Storax is obtained by scoring the bark of the tree. The damage causes the wood and inner bark to produce storax. The inner bark is boiled in water and then pressed in cold water to obtain the storax.

People take storax for cancer, coughs, colds, stomach pain, diarrhea, epilepsy, sore throats, bronchitis, and parasitic infections.

Storax is sometimes applied directly to the skin to protect or treat wounds, or to treat ulcers, skin infections, eczema, and scabies. Storax is an ingredient in Compound Benzoin Tincture.

As an inhalant, storax is placed in a vaporizer and used to treat coughs and bronchitis.

In foods, storax is used as a flavoring or fixative.

In manufacturing, storax is used as a fragrance or fixative in soaps and perfumes. Storax is also used to kill bugs (as a fumigant). It is also used for preparing slides for examination under a microscope.

One interesting fact about vitamin K is that it plays a key role in blood clotting, which is why it is sometimes referred to as the coagulation vitamin. Without sufficient vitamin K, our blood wouldn't be able to clot properly, leading to excessive bleeding and potential health complications.
