This resin is a hard natural tree resin from Brazil.
Although slightly more yellow than the resin from Indonesia it is just as wonderful!
Resin can be used in encaustic painting- it allows wax to be buffed to a higher, more translucent surface
It is used to harden beeswax and raise its melting temperature
It can also be used in such things as beeswax wraps.
Gum Rosin is an entirely natural product and we consume it in food products every day - from chewing gum to soft drinks, gum rosin is 100% compatible with food products. So no concern there. It is also non-irritating to the skin and is used in skin plasters, like Bands-Aids and hair removal waxes.
