Amyris essential oil is steam distilled from the bark of the Amyris balsamifera tree that is native to the West Indies. It has a warm, soft, woody/musty, balsamic aroma and is thought to be one of the oldest materials used for aromatic and perfumery uses; it has been used for at least 4,000 years. It is believed that God instructed King Solomon to make his temple furniture from Amyris, such was its strength and spirituality. Amyris essential oil is more commonly known as West Indian Sandalwood, as it can be used as a cheaper alternative to genuine Sandalwood.

Amyris essential oil is primarily used for uplifting the mood and reducing stress. It is also beneficial for the skin and an excellent meditation aid.

Meditation is a great way to reduce stress and create a safe space for fresh new thinking to emerge. Amyris’s euphoric properties make it a great oil for using with meditation to enhance creativity. As part of your meditative practice, you could add this oil to the mix by creating a Meditation Mist to clear the space around you and to spritz over yourself before you start!

Dry & mature skincare

To aid detoxification

Amyris is quite a stimulating oil for the body and can therefore help with cleansing. It is also good for the digestive system, stimulating things to move through faster! If you’re needing to detoxify and speed things up try this cleansing massage blend.

Firstly, take a body brush and use it in little strokes up your body, moving in the direction towards the heart. Then, add 2 drops Amyris, 2 drops Lemon and 2 drops Grapefruit to 15ml Grapeseed oil, mix well and massage into your body, in the same upwards direction!
