Amyris Essential Oil
Botanical Name: Amyris balsamifera
Extraction method: Amyris Essential Oil is extracted via steam distillation. The steam temperature is meticulously controlled so that it’s just adequate to get the essential oil out of the bark of the Amyris tree but not burn the plant materials or oil. Rest assured that our Amyris Essential Oil is 100% pure and natural.
Description: small, bushy and evergreen, the Amyris tree is native to Haiti where it grows wild. The tree is also being cultivated in Central and South America and other tropical regions throughout the world. As it oil content is very high, native Haitians used to burn its branches like a torch to light their way, thus giving rise to its other name “Torchwood”. Amyris Essential Oil smells like its expensive cousin Sandalwood (an endangered plant species) and offers fantastic health and aromatherapy properties. So Amyris Essential Oil is often used as an affordable and eco-friendly alternative to Sandalwood Essential Oil.
Blends well with: Cedarwood, Rose and Ylang Ylang essential oils
Aromatic scent: gentle, woody with a hint of pepper/ginger, an aroma that will comfort you like your fave warm beverage.
