Benevolent Buddhawood Essential Oil is an offering of a rapturous remedial bark for the enlightenment of all beings. It is sometimes used as a slightly-less-sweet replacement for Sandalwood in perfumes or blends.

Buddhawood Essential Oil is a rich, woodsy essence gathered from the bark of shrubs that grow wild throughout Southern Australia. Buddhawood is a close biochemical cousin to Agarwood with both aromatic woods containing sesquiterpene ketones, eremophilone, hydroxyeremophilone, and hydroxy-dihydroeremophilone. The botanical name, Eremophila, means to love a lonely place. This Buddhawood brew touches the very core of you, the inner sphere where serene solitude is near and dear. One of the strongest-scented woods to come out of the Land Down Under, Buddhawood is known for being an earthy, grounding oil. Its slightly smoky, mossy aroma is renowned for its centering of the spirit.
Tune into your inner-Buddha with this benevolent bark essence.
"If you are lonely when you're alone, you are in bad company."

"The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where
they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be."
~ Anne Frank
