Amyris Historical Snippets:

Amyris essential oil almost exclusively is from Haiti. The Haitian people name the tree “Bois Chandelle” which translates as Candle Wood. The high oil content within the branches lends itself for use as a lit torch at night. Most amyris wood is grown high in the mountains and the indigenous farmers put extreme physical effort in to bring the harvested branches back down to the distilleries for oil production.

Shelf Life of Amyris Essential Oil: 

Our freshly decanted Amyris essential oil will last for 2-3 years minimum from when you open your amber glass bottle if stored correctly:

Primary Storage Considerations:

Keep away from direct light (U.V. radiation)

Keep in the amber glass bottle with lid tightly closed. Only open when you need to and decant into a smaller "working" amber glass bottle if possible (and label so you know what is in it). This is to reduce oxidation.

Secondary Storage Considerations:

Keep in a refrigerator at around 4 degrees celsius.

West Indian Sandalwood or Amyris essential oil has a soft sandalwood type aroma but without the complexity and tenacity of true sandalwood essential oils. Some think of benzoin also when profiling the odour. Some love adding a small amount of amyris to their skin moisturiser when making their own products. In addition, Amyris may help with sleep blends when diffused at bedtime.

Amyris blends well with all cedarwoods, jasmine absolute, Lavandin, Lemon and Sweet Orange.
