10ml Sandalwood Amyris Essential Oil 

Amyris essential oil is also called West Indian Sandalwood oil because its fragrance is reminiscent of sandalwood. It is obtained by steam distillation from the bark and branches of the Amyris balsamifera tree.

Because of its high oil content, this wood burns by itself, like a candle, and is hence called candle wood by the local population. It is a less expensive alternate to pure sandalwood.

  • This oil has been used to clean wounds, and treat influenza and diarrhoea. It is said to be very effective at alleviating cystitis and vaginal infections.
  • When used in a vaporiser, it helps ease anxiety, tension and insomnia. It is used to treat coughs and colds, and bronchitis.
  • It is a very grounding, calming oil and is excellent to try in times of stress and anxiety. It is thought to help with conditions such as bronchitis, skin balancing, scars and stretch marks. 

Essential oils are powerful and highly concentrated.  They can be harmful if not used carefully so it is important to use them safely.  Do not take any oils internally and do not apply to the skin undiluted.  Do not use any oils during pregnancy or if you have any medical issues without taking medical advice or under the guidance of a qualified aromatherapy practitioner.  Consult a qualified aromatherapy practitioner before using oils on children.
