Latin name: Amyris balsamifera  
Source country: Caribbean, Asia  
Appearance: Very thick yellow viscous liquid  
Aroma: Soft, woody, deep, base note.  
Derivation: Steam distillation of the bark of the tree  
Chemicals: Mostly made up of sesquiterpene alcohols. The two main constituents are  
valerainiol (25%-45%) and eudesmol (30%). There is a very large number of minor  
chemical constituents including zingaberene, bisabolene, and elemol. The combination of  
pure elemol and amyris has been shown to repel ticks.  
Uses: Although it is classed as sandalwood, it is not therapeutically as effective as  
mysore sandalwood - which is very expensive and endangered. Due to its extreme base  
note it is widely used in perfumery as a base note and also as a fixative since it tends to  
hold lighter more volatile aromas and release them slowly. In aromatherapy it is used  
mainly in vapourising but it is used as a substitute for mysore sandalwood although the scent is less strong and less appealing. It blends well with other woody scents such as pine, frankincense, cedarwood oils. It is reputed to be quite effective in repelling mosquitoes - as opposed to some other essential oils.  
Note: As with all pure essential oils, dilute appropriately with a suitable carrier oil  
before using on the skin. Do not take essential oils internally
