Product Abstract: Also known as West Indian Sandalwood, Amyris is indigenous to Haiti and the Dominican Republic. The shrub wood for this distillation is collected from fallen branches and dead wood that when stripped of its bark, retains this valuable oil. No pesticides, herbicides or fungicides are used in the processing of the wood or its oil, which has traditionally been used medicinally, as a fragrance, and as an aid to enhance meditation. It is also used as a fixative in perfumery, and a welcome addition to fine toiletries and soaps.
Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.
