Amyris (West Indian Sandalwood)

100% Pure Essential Oil

Scientific name: Amyris balsamifera

Oil origin: Haiti

Extraction: Steam Distillation

Aroma: Gentle, woody, with slight vanilla undertone

Odor strength: Medium

Evaporation: Base

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.

U.S. National Library of Medicine

"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."

Being over 50 and slightly vain, the fine lines have been a challenge. Having received this and started using it. I've decided I'll be ordering more! It's wonderful for your skin removing those fine lines! ;-)
Diffuse --4-Amyris, 3 Rom Cham, 2 Mandarin, 1 Valerian <--- can also be added to a massage oil or cream and rubbed on your chest, back and neck and arms.

For those fine lines ---
3-Amyris, 3 Frankincense, 2 Bergamot and 1 Neroli, Lovely, uplifting. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

I add this into my skin care regimen. It is great to blend with ylang ylang , patchouli, egyptian geranium or Rose oil for your face and neck area at night. I also like to take a nice Epsom Salt bath with a couple drops of this along with lavender to calm a nervous stomach or tight neck and shoulders.

soft scent
By Jillian
May 3, 2016 10:49:20 AM MDT

This is a thicker oil somewhat sticky, but because of the new droppers it comes out beautifully. It smells very softly of sandalwood, but is not nearly as potent as a sandalwoods blend (blend of different sandalwoods) I have from a different company. I would love to try the mysore from JB, but don't have it yet.

This is a very pretty and soft scent, I'm just not sure how lasting it will be.
