Buddha Wood Essential Oil


Buddha wood essential oil was recently harvested as a more modestly priced sandalwood substitute, although the aroma differs noticeably from true sandalwood.  Once used for fence posts in Australia, Buddha wood has become widely known for its therapeutic properties.

It is a wonderfully spiritual oil, and helps enhance meditation and connection with the spirit world.  Its deep exotic undertones make a beautiful addition to men’s colognes, and many androgynous perfume types.
