Description: Amyris is a genus of flowering plants in the citrus family, Rutaceae. The generic name is derived from the Greek word αμυρων (amyron), which means "intensely scented" and refers to the strong odor of the resin. Members of the genus are commonly known as Torchwoods because of their highly flammable wood. Reminiscent of benzoin, Amyris Essential Oil includes sweet, warm, vanilla notes with a woody, cedar-like character.
