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.

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.
