Amyris essential oil commonly referred to as West Indian Sandalwood oil, the Botanical origin of the tree yielding this oil remained obscure until 1886. The main country of origin today is Haiti, where the oil is obtained by steam distillation from broken up wood branches. The locals call it ‘candle wood’ because of its high oil content; it burns like a candle. It is uses as a torch by fishermen and traders. It also makes excellent furniture wood. The production of this oil has dropped with the passing of time due to adverse climatic conditions in Haiti. Amyris essential oil has been used for wound washes, influenza, childbirth recovery, diarrhea, used also as a room fragrance or mood fragrance, as a cheaper alternative to genuine Sandalwood. Used as a fragrance, fixative or a component of soap fragrance. Limited application in flavoring work, but some used in liquors.
