Buddha Wood Essential Oil
Buddha Wood Essential Oil is sustainably wild harvested and extracted via steam distillation of the wood and bark of the Eremophila mitchelli tree, a native Australian shrub-like plant found on the east coast. The oil is known by various other names such as Desert Rosewood and False Sandalwood, and is often harvested as a more affordable substitute for Sandalwood due to its similar, but distinctly different aroma.
