Ancient Wisdom Sandalwood Pure Essential Oil (10ml) Amyris essential oil is also called West Indian Sandalwood oil because its odour is reminiscent of sandalwood. Amyris Essential Oil has a soft, resinous scent that is often used in perfumes as a base note. 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.
The botanical origin of the tree yielding this oil was unknown until 1886 when the main differences between this plant and true sandalwood were identified by microscopic examination of the leaves. Its properties are different, and it is not botanically related to true Sandalwood oil. The Amyris balsamifera tree grows wild in Jamaica, Haiti and other tropical climates.
