Guaiac Wood Essential Oil

I just got done playing around with this oil, and by "playing" I mean toiling to dissolve it in alcohol so I can actually use it.  This is paste.  Yummy smelling paste but still paste.  I gave up on softening it in a waterbath and finally  ended up scooping it out of the bottle and dissolving it in pure grain alcohol-which is fine since I intend to use it for making perfume anyway.

The smell is like a cross between rose, amyris and sandalwood.  I am going to use it as a base note in a perfume-maybe in a blend of rose, myrrh, patchouli.  I'll let you know how it goes.

It can also be used for respiratory infections and on arthritc joints.

Amyris oil appears to lack the well documented, historically rich background of other essential oils. This is largely due to

the fact that the botanical origin of the tree that is used to produce amyris oil,
The sweet, balsamic, wood-like fragrance of Amyris oil allows it to blend well with geranium oil, pine oil, spruce oil, cedar

wood oil, myrrh oil, galbanum oil, frankincense oil, cypress oil, clove oil, aniseed oil, lemon oil, orange oil,

Commonly found in soaps and other 'Sandalwood' products in place of 'true' Sandalwood, Amyris supports vibrant physical

health by helping to remove physical and etheric toxins that congest and distort the body. An alternative choice in place of

the endangered 'true' Sandalwood, Amyris is a healthy, inexpensive and sustainable substitute in many aromatherapy
