    100% Pure Essential Oil

    Scientific name: Amyris balsamifera

    Odor strength: Medium

    Origin: Haiti


    Amyris essential oil is distilled from the wood of the tropical evergreen Amyris tree found throughout the world. It often referred to as West Indian Sandalwood, though does not possess the same depth and character as true Sandalwood. Amyris offers a sweet-woody, balsamic aroma with good fixative value, and is often used as a substitute for Sandalwood when a less expensive alternative is required.

    Amyris relaxes and calms the mind, helping to alleviate stress and anxiety. It is also said to uplift the mood and it has an aphrodisiac-like effect when used in small amounts in a blend.

    Amyris is often used as an antiseptic, a sedative, and to improve circulation. It is very calming to the skin and the mind.

    "Both amyris oil and elemol were repellent to both species of ticks. Elemol did not differ significantly in effectiveness against A. americanum from the widely used repellent deet. At 2 and 4 h after application to filter paper, 827 microg amyris oil/cm(2) paper repelled 80 and 55%, respectively, of A. americanum nymphs. Ixodes scapularis was repelled by lower concentrations of amyris oil and elemol than A. americanum."

    I love this oil and ...
    Oct 17, 2020
    I love this oil and the price isn't bad. It smells nice and blends great with other oils. I love to blend it with clove, cedarwood, frankicense, ylang ylang, etc. I wish it was made in a 30ML size!

    Smell, Substitute for higher priced sandalwood




    Amyris is one of the newest additions to my essential oil toolbox. I love the aroma, and I use this in many diffuser blends that call for Sandalwood, because I don't have the luxury oil. Even if I had sandalwood, I would still enjoy using this one, and can do so guilt free :)

    I’ve tried several other “cheaper” brands of sandalwood but they don’t touch this! I love how it’s so versatile and blends well with so many other oils! I wanted to give this a go because the other was kinda out of my price range right now and I’m extremely pleased with the light scent it has. Next time though I think I will try the pricier one and see the difference.

    I wanted Sandlewood, but could not afford the “real” one. I read that Amaris could be used. It worked for me in my blend. Thanks for great oils.
