Amyris Product Template 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 Roman Chamomile, 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 for the Rose or Jasmine.

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%.

Great oil!

Plant therapy never disappoints! This oils seems to be very similar to sandalwood!

Love this stuff

Amyris smells amazing. I use this with vetiver in a personal inhaler. It really helps with my insomnia. Last night I used it and was asleep within 30 minutes!

My happy oil

Amyris is my favorite! It's quite relaxing, and makes me happy. I diffuse it in sleep blends, and I've also made a perfume roller out of it blended with ylang ylang and vanilla. I personally don't think it smells like Sandalwood, and I have yet to try it out for sore throats.

Amyris

I love Amyris. It reminds me of Copaiba. Whenever a blend calls for sandalwood, I substitute Amyris in it's place. I love Amyris mixed with Himalayan Cedarwood and Lavender. My favorite sleep blend. I really dislike Lavender and Cedarwood, however, when mixed with Amyris it somehow mutes the two smells and makes everything blend very nicely. Great oil!

Disappointed

Nothing but problems with this. The first bottle I received the cap was split open so it wasn't sealed correctly and had leaked all over. Contacted the company and they sent me a new one. Got the new one and the dropper doesn't work I cannot get it out of the bottle. Grrrr...
