They can be grown in full sun or light shade in light, acidic soil that has been improved with loam or peat moss. They may also be increased by layering the lower branches, however, seeds are the best means of propagation. Some kinds of Styrax produce a highly fragrant, balsamic resin called Benzoin. It is used in lotions, perfumes, tooth powders and incense and as an expectorant, inhalant and an antiseptic for external use.
