WHAT DOES THE NAME AMYRIS DESIGN MEAN?
Amyris balsamifera is a bushy shrub with flowers, native to the Caribbean. It is called "candlelight wood" or "Torchwood". Traditionally Antillean fishermen used its resin-rich wood for lighting. Indeed, it offers a bright light and burns very long.
In addition, its fragrance with woody notes reminiscent of the smell of sandalwood. Transformed into essential oil, this plant has relaxing olfactory qualities and generates a warm atmosphere.
