The botanical origin of the Amyris tree yielding this oil remained obscure until 1886 when Kirkby & Holmes identified striking differences between this plant and true Sandalwood by microscopic examination of the leaves.
This rich warm woody scent reminiscent of benzoin with a vanilla note is often used in perfumes as a base. It is wonderful for relaxation that helps to melt away that stress and anxiety.
