Our organically crafted Muhuhu Essential Oil is steam distilled from the ethically harvested hardwood offcuts of Brachyleana hutchinsii (synonym Brachylaena huillensis) trees, native to the montane forests of Eastern Africa. Also known as African Sandalwood Essential Oil, Muhuhu Essential Oil has a complex and intriguing Sandalwood-like aroma - a blend of sweet balsamic undertones and woody, faintly smoky notes - which serves as an excellent fixative in natural perfumes.

Native to Kenya, the Muhuhu Tree (Brachyleana hutchinsii is a fascinating species renowned for its exceptionally durable and strong wood, which is used for making a wide variety of products such as furniture, carvings, and construction materials. Alternative names for the tree include Silver Oak and Muhugwe. Muhuhu Essential Oil blends well with most other oils lending a smooth precious wood base note. Like other oils known for woody notes, the aroma of Muhugwe Essential Oil improves with age.
