Eremophila mitchellii was named in 1848 by botanist George Bentham, after Sir Thomas Mitchell, who led the discovery expedition into Australia. The word
Eremophila comes from the Greek eremos, which means
desert, and from phileo, which means
love, and indeed, these plants do seem to love a desert climate. There is a sense that this tree has had to develop complex resins and oils to protect itself from the harsh climate and ward off myriad insatiable predators desperate to bore into its heartwood.
Uniquely, Buddha Wood Oil is predominantly made of the bicyclic sesquiterpenes known as eremophilones. The rare sesquiterpene compounds lend anti-inflammatory properties to this rare and unique oil. With more prominent balsamic and smoke notes, Buddha Wood Oil Essential Oil is a rare and special treat that is sure to inspire creativity in natural perfumes and aromatherapeutic formulas. It is often used in perfumes, especially in refined colognes for men. The stimulating, purifying, and supportive energy of Buddhawood Oil also works to boost and support the immune system as well as reduce viral and bacterial activity. Often, this essential oil is selected for its skin nourishing properties, as well as to help ease unwanted muscle spasms.
Emotionally and energetically, Buddha Wood Oil supports deeper meditation and inner unity. This remarkably balancing and grounding oil enriches meditative practice and supports the mindfulness needed to bring focus and clarity when dealing with grief or difficult situations. Using Buddha Wood Oil in blends as an aphrodisiac adds depth and complexity.
