Amyris is a hard grained dense wood containing aromatic resins. It is a small evergreen tree native to Asia, Haiti and other Caribbean islands, as well as Central America. In Haiti the locals use it for firewood and also for torches.
Amyris is also sometimes called West Indian Sandalwood as it smells similar to Sandalwood, however its properties are different and it is not botanically related to true Sandalwood Oil. Both are useful when fragrance blending.
Amyris has a pleasing dry, earthy balsamic aroma.
Uses; Known for its calming effects and anti-aging properties in skin care. It is also anti-inflammatory and can help soothe insect bites or skin irritations.
It blends well with other oils and can be used in perfumery or soap making etc.
For External Cosmetic Use Only

If blending into creams, lotions, body butters etc, 1-2% maximum of the pure Absolute oil or Essential oil to 100% of the product is usually about right.
