(PLEASE do not turn the bottle up-side down to dispense the oil; doing so may release the oil in a stream. The best way to yield droplets is to tilt the bottle sightly to the side at a 30 degree angle and to tap lightly on the bottom of the bottle.)

While commonly referred to as West Indian Sandalwood oil, Amyris Essential Oil should not be confused for the expensive and highly-coveted Mysore Sandalwood, AKA East Indian Sandalwood (Santalum Album), Essential Oil. Amyris does not have the same depth nor character as Mysore Sandalwood. The two oils have different aromas and viscosities.
Amyris oil exudes a sweet-woody, balsamic aroma that works well as a natural fixative for perfumes and aromatherapy blends. Extracted from wood chips of the tropical evergreen Amyris tree, the oil relaxes the mind and helps to alleviate stress and anxiety. It has an uplifting, sedative, and aphrodisiac-like effect when used in small amounts.
Some have described Amyris oil as being reminiscent of benzoin oil because the scent includes balsamic, vanilla notes with a woodsy, cedar quality.
The oil is often used to substitute for East Indian Sandalwood, but please note that it is not a true replacement that serves East Indian Sandalwood justice.
The oil is thick and may not drip out of the dropper properly. Patience is needed when dealing with the oil.
We ship the oil in an amber glass bottle with a eurodropper and a white or black cap; please do not transfer the oil into a plastic bottle once received. To prolong the oil, keep the oil in a cool, dry place, away from the sun.
All of our essential oils are pure, therapeutic and unadulterated. Essential oils are highly concentrated; you must dilute them in carrier oils before topical application. The recommended topical dilution is 2%, which equals to about 12 drops per ounce (2 tablespoons) of carrier oil.
If your skin or any part of your mucous membranes accidentally comes into direct contact with pure, undiluted essential oil, rinse your skin or the membrane(s) with a carrier oil or any other oily substance; do not first rinse with water. Rinsing with water immediately after the undiluted contact will only exacerbate the problem or irritation. If the irritation does not stop or worsens, please seek medical attention.
DISCLAIMER AND SAFETY TIPS: The statements provided above are for educational purposes only, have not been evaluated by the FDA, and should not be misconstrued as medical advice. The product offered here is NOT intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any illnesses or diseases. The oil is for external use only; it is NOT intended for internal consumption (we strongly advise against the internal consumption of undiluted essential oils, as do leading certified aromatherapists). Do NOT apply undiluted essential oils directly onto the skin—always dilute the essential oils in base oil (almond oil, jojoba, etc.) If you are pregnant, epileptic, have liver damage or any other medical conditions or injuries, please consult a qualified aromatherapist or doctor before use. Keep out of reach of children and use with extreme caution when treating children—and at extremely low doses. Do not use on pets unless you have sought expert advice. A skin patch test is recommended for sensitive individuals—dilute the oil in a base/carrier oil and apply in a localized region that can’t be normally seen (inner elbow, ankles, or inner knee, etc.); if irritation occurs within 12-24 hours, discontinue use and consult your doctor!
