Amyris Essential Oil

Amyris Essential Oil

from 3.50

Amyris Essential oil is also know as West Indian Sandalwood. It is native to the Carribean and this specific oil is from Haiti. The scent is woody/ masculine with a soft and sweet edge.

It is a somewhat similar scent to Indian sandalwood and more readily available, but the chemical makeup and therapeutic properties are different. Amyris is high in valerianol, much like Valerian essential oil, while Indian Sandalwood is very high in santolol.

Because Amyris is high is valerianol, a sesquiterpenic alcohol, it can be considered to be calming and anti-inflammatory - However Amyris is generally used for perfumery and in aromatic blends to set other oils. It is very popular in blends for men!

Amyris balsamifera
Origin: Haiti
Steam distilled from the wood

With every oil that I ship I also include information on about the oil, blending, and its suggested uses.

I use the highest quality essential oils sourced from around the world. I feel that much like wine, essential oils have terroir, and are the most potent therapeutically if they are grown in the part of the world where they have grown for centuries. For this reason the best Frankincense comes from Africa, the best Sandalwood from India... Every batch of essential oils that I sell has been tested by Gas Chromatograph/Mass Spectrometer (GC/MS) to ensure consistent quality.
