Description: Amyris Essential Oil has a woody, sweet, balsamic, and slightly peppery aroma. It is often referred to as “Poor man’s Sandalwood” or “West Indian Sandalwood” because it is used by many as a low-cost alternative to the very expensive true Sandalwood (Indian, Indonesian, Australian). This oil is perfect for warm, soft scented diffusing blends. The viscosity of this oil is very high, so if used in a diffuser it is recommended to be put in an essential oil blend to thin the oil.
Common use: Amyris has an array of healthy properties such as antiseptic, balsamic, decongestant, emollient, muscle relaxant and sedative. Amyris is commonly used as a fixative in perfumes and soaps. Amyris has been traditionally applied to help with coughs, chest congestion, stress, restlessness, and tension. It also assists with skin regeneration and anti-aging. With Valerianol as its major chemical constituent, Amyris is often used to assist with insomnia, stress relief, and tension. Diffusing Amyris before bedtime can assist with falling asleep.
Directions: Recommended to properly blend in a carrier oil prior to topical applications. Patch test before use in case of sensitivity. This Essential Oil has a thick viscosity that can make it difficult to pour out of the bottle. Place the bottle in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes before pouring or use a Pipette to retrieve the oil.
Cautions: Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children. If pregnant or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician.
