Botanical Name: Amyris balsamifera.

Main Constituents: Valerianol, β-eudesmol

Plant Part: Wood and branches

Origin: Dominican Republic

Processing Method: Steam Distilled

Description / Colour / Consistency:  A moderately viscous but clear, pale yellow liquid.

Aromatic Summary / Note / Strength of Aroma: A base-to-middle note with a medium aroma, its scent is mild, sweetly balsamic and somewhat reminiscent of Cedar and Muhuhu.

Blends With:  Amber, Jasmine, Rose, and other woods. It is often used to extend Sandalwood.

Product Abstract: Also known as West Indian Sandalwood, Amyris is indigenous to Haiti and the Dominican Republic. The shrub wood for this distillation is collected from fallen branches and dead wood that when stripped of its bark, retains the precious oils. Available year-round, the semi-aridity of the locale is constant and gives the oil ongoing consistency in quality and scent. No pesticides, herbicides or fungicides are used in the processing of the wood or its oil, which has traditionally been used medicinally, as a fragrance, and as an aid to enhance meditation. It is also used as a fixative in perfumery, and a welcome addition to fine toiletries and soaps.

Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.

Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping), be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

One of my new favourite essential oils - this is soft, subtle, not too sweet. Its every so slightly smokey at first and then softens out really wonderfully... a little woody, a little tobacco-y, a little leathery. It kind of reminds me of the scent you get when you walk into a really old church in England, or a vintage bookshop. Also, so far it seems to be blending very well with lots of other scents, such as frankincense, cedar or rose.

I really love this oil. It smells great, but is not overpowering. The one downside to this oil is that it is very thick. It tok me 10 minutes to get 5 drops from the bottle today! Other than that, a wonderful oil.
