History and Additional Information

Peru Balsam does not originate in Peru, although it was shipped to Europe in the seventeenth century from the Peruvian ports of Lima and Callao, hence the name. These days El Salvador is the principal exporter of peru balsam.

Peru balsam comes from a sub-tropical, leguminous tree which has been transplanted to other areas where is has become highly invasive, out-competing the natural vegetation and causing considerable ecological damage.
