What Our Customers Think
Needed for skin care products. Good quality
Immediate stress relief
The relaxing effect of this oil is so quick and strong, I immediately get a sense of calm as soon as the diffuser starts going.
I find that usually oils that help with congestion are very minty and strong - like peppermint, spearmint, and so on. Amyris oil however, is really good for congestion but has a sweet scent, almost like vanilla, which is heaps better than the minty alternatives.
I'm in a mismatched libido marriage. Sometimes it's hard, but we both make an effort and try to find products that help. Amyris oil is amongst the most effective aphrodisiacs we have tried so far, and it is completely natural which is a very big bonus.
I haven't experienced any noticeable benefits from using this oil, but the scent is easily the best amongst all essential oils.
