Plant Therapy Amyris Essential Oil
Amyris Essential Oil has a soft, resinous scent that is often used in perfumes as a base note. This oil is wonderful for relaxation, with a refreshing aroma that helps melt away stress and support a balanced, anxiety-free mind, particularly before sleep. When added to creams and diluted in a carrier oil, Amyris can also be used in natural beauty products to help improve the appearance of fine lines and the texture of mature skin. Amyris is a thick, pale yellow essential oil steam distilled from the wood of a tree native to Haiti and other tropical climates. Amyris is also sometimes called West Indian Sandalwood or Torchwood; however, its properties are different and it is not botanically related to true Sandalwood oil.
Diffuse 2 drops Amyris, 1 drop Jasmine Absolute and 1 drop Rose Absolute to help set a romantic mood. Need a substitution? Try 1 drop Patchouli or Ylang Ylang Extra for the Rose Absolute or Jasmine Absolute.
For skin, add 3 drops Amyris, 3 drops Frankincense Frereana, 2 drops Bergamot, and 1 drop Neroli for sheer skin bliss!
For topical application, dilute to 2-4%.
