AMYRISAmyris balsamifera (Rutacee)
Type: Organic (CE certification 009577-2015)
Also known as West Indian Sandalwood and often confused with Santalum album (Indian sandalwood), Amyris balsamifera is a plant that's native to the wooded regions of Haiti, where it's commonly known as "torchwood" thanks to its high oil content, the wood burns slowly, like a candle. Amyris balsamifera is a small, shrub-like tree that's commonly found on mountain slopes. It has an aromatic bark, dense foliage and attractive white flowers.
The essential oil is obtained by steam distillation of the shredded bark and twigs. Results are better with seasoned wood. The oil is thick, pale yellow or near colourless, with a subtle woody fragrance that's reminiscent of sandalwood. It combines well with oakmoss absolute, woody oils and the essential oils of: Agarwood, Cedar, Citronella, Lavender, Nutmeg and Ylang-ylang.
