Originating in North America, amyris is a flowering shrub that was mistaken for sandalwood until the late 19th century. Along with other plants that have high resin content, amyris is commonly referred to as a "torchwood" or “candlewood” due to its essential oil-saturated wood, which burns like a candle! Amyris bears an earthy, balsamic fragrance, and is regularly used as a grounding bottom note in perfumes, as well as soaps and other beauty products.

History of Amyris

Believed to be sandalwood up to the late 1880s, amyris shares much with its fellow fragrant woody plant, though it has a pleasantly dry and subtle aroma of its own. Its lightly lingering scent makes it a perfect base for perfumes and incense, and contributes to its popularity as an aid in meditation. Additionally, it can help ward off creepy crawlies thanks to one of its key components, elemol. Warm, earthy and inviting, amyris, with its sweet and balsamic qualities, is ideal for those seeking moments of calmness and clarity.
