All our essential oils are 100% pure, natural, concentrated oils. We do sell a handful of blends on the very expensive oils alongside the absolutes to make them a little more affordable and these are clearly marked ‘blend’ within the title, description and on the bottle. Ours may not be the cheapest essential oils you will find on line but we also supply these trade to aromatherapists, chiropodists, shops, perfume manufacturers and other herbalists meaning we have to supply the best quality and freshest oils we can. As a result the cost can be a little higher than some of the cheaper brands but you are assured of the quality associated with Avena. Some essential oils you find in some (not all) health food stores and on the high street are so low in quality and full of adulterations that you would be shocked. Even essential oils labelled as pure are not always what they seem. Please read our safety page before using any essential oils.

West Indian sandalwood oil or amyris essential oil is the naturally occurring essential oil from the wood of the West Indian sandalwood tree, the Amyris balsamifera. The oil is recovered through the physical separation process of partial pressure steam distillation. No additives, solvents or chemicals are used at any point of the recovery process. One of the main uses for amyris essential oil is as a substitute for the more expensive Sandalwood Mysore (Santalum album) as an ingredient in such things as soap making creams, lotions or for burning as the aroma is very similar. Amyris has often been referred to as poor man's sandalwood. One of the original uses for amyris was to be diluted and used as a wound cleanser as it is claimed that it possesses natural antiseptic qualities and has some expectorant qualities when inhaled in steam. It is also historically reported to have some aphrodisiac qualities and is used in massage blends or oil burners especially for meditation or prayer. Aroma: exotic and woody.
