A small tree - which bears no physical resemblance to the Sandalwood East Indian tree family. Sandalwood West Indian, Amyris is a genus of flowering plants in the citrus family, Rutaceae, which has its own distinctive, pleasant dry-woody aroma, which some may say - bear a slight similar scent resemblance to a Sandalwood aroma. The tree is commonly known in its surrounding areas of Haiti, Venezuela and other local tropical areas by the name of Candlewood and/or Torchwood, the West Indian Rosewood, and Amyris Oil.
The gathering and cutting is performed by the indigenous farmers and is greatly labor intensive, as the trees are grown wild in mountainous region of SE Haiti, and are hard to to reach. Once the wood collected must dry for at least a year (ideally 2 - 3 years) before being coarsely crushed for distillation. The resulting essential oil is then refined for several months or even a year to ensure optimal olfactory quality.
