Amyris Product Sheet

Amyris Essential Oil is wonderful for relaxation, particularly before sleep. Its also used to help improve the appearance of fine lines and the texture of mature skin. Amyris is a thick, pale yellow essential oil steam distilled from the wood of a tree native to Haiti and other tropical climates. Amyris is also sometimes called West Indian Sandalwood or Torchwood; however, its properties are different and it is not botanically related to true Sandalwood oil.

Diffuse 2 drops Amyris, 1 drop Jasmine Absolute and 1 drop Rose Absolute to help set a romantic mood. Need a substitution? Try 1 drop Patchouli or Ylang Ylang Extra for the Rose Absolute or Jasmine Absolute.

For skin, add 3 drops Amyris, 3 drops Frankincense frereana, 2 drops Bergamot, and 1 drop Neroli for sheer skin bliss!

For topical application, dilute to 2-4%.

5.0 5  Love this stuff

At first this oil is kind of ow key, but as you smell it a little longer it seems to become more complex to my nose. Woody with somewhat of a balsamic feel to it. I love it in the diffuser and works well in sleep/relax blends.

5.0 5  Smoky/Masculine

Amyris is quickly becoming one of my favorite oils! It has a creamy, smoky personality that is definitely masculine and almost peppery. It's perfect to balance out blends/oils that tend to be cloyingly sweet. I can't wait to try it for skin care!

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

4.0 5  soothing

I wasn't very fan of the smell out of the bottle; however, in a blend, the scent is very lovely. Only tried for sleeping and relaxing. Great to hear that it's good for the aging skin.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

5.0 5  Sleepy

I just started using this in a sleep blend, and it is wonderful. The scent is a little different, but I like it, and it works! Haven't tried it yet for skin care, but plan on making a night time moisturizer with it.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
