Our wild harvested Buddha Wood Essential Oil is sure to please. While the tree was once considered as an alternative to sandalwood and is also known as desert rosewood, the oil is not quite as sweet although it does make an excellent addition to personal scents, especially in men’s scents. Some say it’s an aphrodisiac. Whether it is or not, its fixative abilities mean that it will help personal scents hold together longer and it’s slightly bitter tip will tame overly floral scents. As an addition to men’s lotions or beard oil, it is perfect!
Mentally, Budda Wood is said to be calming and may be beneficial for occasional anxious feelings and help encourage a positive attitude. This will be best achieved through inhalation, whether you’re using personal inhalers, aromatherapy jewelry, or diffusion.
Topically, Buddha wood is great with oils for outdoor blends, like Catnip and Lemon Tea Tree. We like to add a bit of Neem CO2 to the mix. It may also be beneficial in “after workout” blends for those sore, tired muscles. It may also be useful in first aid blends and immune boosting blends (which would be better used through inhalation).
I spoke to Mark Webb about its ketone content, because several people commented on this. According to him, the ketones in it are “the good kind,” which definitely callms my own worries.
Do not purchase this oil thinking that it will work as a substitute for Australian Sandalwood, despite what you may have heard. The scent profile is not like any sandlwood I’ve smelled, even if some of the psychological benefits may be similar.
Most of the known research on this oil covers its use with termites. We are only learning about other benefits through anecdote from our Australian counterparts, who have to distil the wood for 7 days to get the oil from it with approximately a 2.5% yield.
With our pre-diluted oils . . . if diluted for kids is the highest dilution you see, it’s also the max dilution possible. Pre-diluted oils are in jojoba.
