Amyris is indigenous to Haiti and the Dominican Republic, it is also known as West Indian Sandalwood. The shrub wood for this distillation is collected from fallen branches and dead wood that when stripped of its bark, retains the precious oils. True to the nature of base notes in general, it provides grounding and soothing qualities. The essential oil, like many other resin oils, is said to have beneficial properties for the skin. The beauty of Amyris is its refreshing aroma. The essential oil lifts the spirit and helps instill a sense of calm. In the past, Amyris has been used in the fragrance industry to mimic Vetiver essential oil and today both aromatherapists and perfumers may substitute it for endangered or scarce species of Sandalwood.extraction: steam distillationplant part: wood and branchesorigin: Dominican Republicbotanical name: amyris balsamifera
