Qualified aromatherapists may use amyris essential oil for common complaints such as:

  • skin conditions: a wonderful addition to skincare especially aftershaves
  • respiratory issues – coughs and congestion
  • mood/perfumery – can be used to enhance calming blends, subtly expanding the woody notes and rounding up blends

How we use it:

Inhalation / Vapourisation:

- We really enjoy this oil in relaxing blends – with Bergamot, Lemon and Black Pine

- For calmer, more ‘grounded’ blend try it with our wonderful Helichrysum or Frankincense. It also blends well with Lavender.

- Vapourise for coughs and congestion – perhaps with our Black Pine or Lavandin .

Skin applications:

- For oily/congested skin - add together with our Geranium or Lavender essential oil to an unscented face cream. For drier/mature skin type – try with Helichrysum or Criste marine and Lavender

- For aftershave – try with our Cypruss or Frankincese
