Amyris Essential Oil–West Indian Sandalwood


The aroma of amyris essential oil relieves stress, anxiety, and  fear. It helps insomnia and helps the body relax.

Inhaling its aroma  enhances meditation and spiritual connection.  It uplifts the spirit and opens connection to an expanded state of consciousness, much like Australian and Indian sandalwood.

Amyris essential oil is helpful for those recovering from deep trauma or abuse.  It enables one to relax and its slight aphrodisiac properties help in reprogramming sexual abuse and trauma.

With a smooth, rich, subtle aroma, amyris can be used as a fixative in many perfume types and essential oil blends.  It lends itself well to men’s colognes,  precious woods notes, florals, and amber bases.

It blends well with all precious woods and resins, patchouli, vetiver, and thuja.

Amyris is commonly used to adulterate vetiver and true sandalwood essential oils.  However, its aroma stands on its own for use in lesser expensive natural blends and perfumes.
