Once known as West Indian Sandalwood, it is steam distilled from the wood of Amyris Balsamifera. Amyris essential oil is somewhat viscous, offering a warm-woody bottom note. Blends well with lavandin, citronella and cedarwood.
If you find the warm, base note appealing in a lip balm or lip stick, this essential oil is FCC classified. FCC is Food Chemical Codex. We suggest making a test batch with 0.5% flavor added. Determine if this amount is suitable to you and increase, or decrease, for future batches.
