Description

Amyris is not botanically related to Sandalwood, however, it has been used as a substitute due to its woody aroma and calming effect on the body, skin and mind.

Nature/Essence – Soothing & Relaxing

Amyris helps soften and soothe dry or irritated skin and has healing and antiseptic properties. It encourages skin regeneration - especially beneficial for mature or prematurely ageing skin.

Amyris has a relaxing effect on the body, nice to massage on tense, stiff or restless muscles. It can also help open up the airways and ease congestion.

Amyris is calming and aids sleep, and in low doses is said to be an aphrodisiac. It has a grounding effect and helps deepen the breath making it useful for meditation.

good value for money

I had never used Amyris oil before and decided to try it out. The claimed properties of Amyris include: it has a relaxing effect on the body, nice to massage on tense, stiff or restless muscles; Amyris is calming and aids sleep and has antiseptic properties.

I would agree that it has a calming effect on the body since I have used it on my skin at the end of the day. I don't regret that I bought it.

Amazing

Very good smell and viscous. Than castor oil. It’d be great if dropper is given as lid. Made beautiful lip balms with this EO
