Our organically crafted Amyris Hydrosol is distilled from the heartwood and branches of the small evergreen Amyris balsamifera tree native to Asia, Haiti and other Caribbean islands, as well as Central America. The sweet-woody, balsamic aroma of Amyris Hydrosol helps in balancing the natural cycles and rhythms, and calms and nourishes the heart chakra. True to the nature of base notes in general, Amyris Hydrosol provides grounding and soothing qualities.

Amyris is of great value to locals who use it for firewood and, since the hard-grained, dense wood is heavy with aromatic resins, branches serve as excellent, bright-burning torches. Although often referred to as West Indian Sandalwood or Indies Sandalwood, due to its similar aroma, Amyris is not related botanically and therefore is not a substitute for Sandalwood in aromatherapy.


Amyris Hydrosol slows the ageing process and regenerates the skin, making it an excellent choice for facial care blends. It is also a highly effective natural remedy for dry skin, as it is a rich emollient that lubricates the skin keeping it hydrated and moisturized.

Emotionally and energetically, Amyris Hydrosol lifts the spirit and helps instill a sense of calm. This makes it highly effective in relieving stress, frustration and irritability. Amyris is a favourite among artists, poets and musicians for its ability to heighten imagination, creativity, and intuition. The captivating aroma of Amyris is considered aphrodisiac that invigorates the senses while stimulating a steamy magnetism.
