100% Pure Therapeutic Amyris Essential Oil
Botanical Name: Amyris balsamifera
Extraction Process: Steam Distilled
Part of the Plant Used: Wood
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.
How to use Amyris Essential Oil: Recommended to properly blend in a carrier oil prior to topical applications using safe dilution rates. 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.
