Buddha Wood essential oil, Wild, Australia; The scent is woody, mossy, and mild with subtle leathery-smoky notes. Though not powerful the aroma has decent tenacity and remains balanced throughout. It is not as sweet as sandalwood or cedar atlas. The color is rich and brown; red copper-like.

This exotic oil is said to be relaxing and good for meditation. It is also said to be good for pain relief of sore muscles and joints.

It blends well with Muhuhu and other woods and has a fixative affect in men's toiletries.

Therapeutically, Buddha Wood essential oil is anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, relaxing, and immune system supporting.

Buddha Wood Oil is also known as Australian Sandalwood. Buddha Wood is also called False Sandalwood, Sandalwood Box, and Australian Desert Rosewood, and the scientific name is actually Eremophila mitchelli. It is in the family Myoporceae according to some experts. Others say it is in the Scrophulariaceae (Caprariaceae, Hebenstretiaceae, Myoporaceae, Oftiaceae, and Verbascaceae are considered to be synonyms of Scrophulariaceae).

It is a native plant in the arid areas of New South Wales, Queensland, and South Australia and is an evergreen and often resinous shrub to small tree ( 3-8 meters) in height. It grows in may areas predominantly found on Western slopes and plains of New South Wales, Queensland, and South Australia and exhibits dark, rough bark, with hairless leaves that are bright green and aromatic. The flowers are small and white, but numerous. The scented wood is burnt for its pleasant aroma.

Apparently, the bark is very appetizing to rabbits (an introduced pest species in Australia). Consequently they make for this shrub as soon as grass fails, and hence twigs of the " Budtha" are used (when treated with strychnine) as bait for rabbits

The tree, very common in Western Queensland, is often confused with Santalum lanceolatum known as Australian sandalwood. The logs, after reduction to shavings, yield from 2-3% of a dark colored viscous oil with a pleasant and characteristic odor. The oil, though dark in color and neither a substitute nor an alternative for true sandalwood oil (Santalum album L.), possesses marked blending and fixative qualities.

The essential oil derived from Buddha Wood is said to help center the emotions so perhaps the name comes from the way in which Buddhist meditation does the same thing. The name False Sandalwood is because the tree is highly aromatic as the Sandalwood tree is, but is not the same plant. The name Australian Desert Rosewood refers to it growing in arid areas and the fact that the wood has a dark reddish look, similar to rosewood. The name Sandalwood Box refers again to its aromatic oil content and to its size and structure as a small tree or shrub, as in Boxwood (traditionally used to create garden mazes.
