Sandalwood Amyris Essential Oil is derived from a plant known as Amyris balsamifera, which is part of the Rutaceae plant family. The Sandalwood Amyris is a small to medium sized bushy tree that can live for many decades. Ideally the tree should be 40 years old before the bark from which the oil is obtained but younger trees can be used.

This essential oil originates from the West Indies, but can now found in many tropical parts of the world including Haiti, Jamaica and south and central America. We currently source our Sandalwood Amyris Essential Oil from India and the oil is steam distilled from the bark of the tree.
