  1. Amyris oil appears to lack the well documented, historically rich background of other essential oils. This is largely due to

    the fact that the botanical origin of the tree that is used to produce amyris oil,
    The sweet, balsamic, wood-like fragrance of Amyris oil allows it to blend well with geranium oil, pine oil, spruce oil, cedar

    wood oil, myrrh oil, galbanum oil, frankincense oil, cypress oil, clove oil, aniseed oil, lemon oil, orange oil,

    Commonly found in soaps and other 'Sandalwood' products in place of 'true' Sandalwood, Amyris supports vibrant physical

    health by helping to remove physical and etheric toxins that congest and distort the body. An alternative choice in place of

    the endangered 'true' Sandalwood, Amyris is a healthy, inexpensive and sustainable substitute in many aromatherapy

  2. I have made this soap to be very mild and extra moisturizing, super fatted at 8%, which means that I have added extra 8% oils to the recipe to make it nourishing for the skin, and lots of Cocoa butter. You don’t have to worry; the soap will not make your skin feel greasy. It will just gently cleanse your skin and leave it moisturized.
