Amyris Product Sheet

Amyris is a thick, pale yellow essential oil steam distilled from the wood of a tree native to Haiti and other tropical climates. Because of its very high oil content, native peoples burned it as a torch to light their path through darkness; so another name for it is Torchwood. Amyris is also sometimes called West Indian Sandalwood; however, its properties are different and it is not botanically related to true Sandalwood oil.
Amyris Essential Oil is superb for relaxation, particularly before sleep. Add 4-5 drops Amyris to your diffuser about 1 hour before going to bed, or add 4 drops Amyris, 2 drops Chamomile Roman, 2 drops Mandarin, and 1 drop Valerian Root essential oils to 1 ounce of lotion or carrier oil and massage onto the upper chest, back of neck, or arms.

Diffuse 2 drops Amyris, 1 drop Jasmine Absolute and 1 drop Rose Absolute to help set a mood.

You can substitute 1 drop Patchouli or Ylang Ylang Extra for the Rose Absolute or Jasmine Absolute.

Amyris is also used to help improve the appearance of fine lines and the texture of mature 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%.

4.0 5  Relaxing scent - reminds me of Cedarwood

A lovely scent! Some people say it smells similar to Vetiver, but to me it reminded me of Cedarwood. I noticed I felt relaxation as I sniffed from the bottle. Looking forward to diffusing.

5.0 5  Gentle, beautiful, smooth

I adore this oil for when I'm needing something gentle to blend with lavender for rest but don't want a full-on vetiver coma. It's a pleasant, gentle experience much like copaiba to my nose, but slightly differing properties.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

5.0 5  Dreamy

This is my go to oil for night time woodsy diffusing. I add it to almost all sleep blends I use. It is a burnt but also sweet scent that adds a beautiful depth to any blend I've added it to. Really enjoy this oil! Super happy I bought it in the 30 ml size. Will probably buy the 100 ml next time!

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

5.0 5  My alltime favorite

Out of all of my essential oils, Amyris is my favorite scent. It's slightly sweet, but not too sweet. It's slightly woodsy as well. What I really like is that the smell lasts for a long time, and can lighten up the smell of darker and more overpowering smells when making blends. It's a really great deodorant when made in a spritzer!

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
