Originating in Haiti as the West Indian sandalwood, amyris oil has been used internationally for its numerous health and aromatherapy benefits.
This earthy oil acts as a strong decongestant for those looking to ease a cough or cold and flu-like symptoms. Its antiseptic qualities are even able to boost and protect the immune system from infections and pathogens. Amyris can boost skin elasticity so it may be combined with a carrier oil to make massage oils and used as a muscle relaxant or for anti-aging wrinkles.
Use this oil in a diffuser when meditating to ease anxious thoughts or at night for a better nights rest. The oils scent is used in perfumes and makes the oil a perfect fixative for soap making. This thick and musky scented oil is famous for how slowly it burns making a great replacement for candles, especially because it has a hint of vanilla. It can even help with camping as a natural insect repellent against mosquitoes.
