Eremophila Mitchellii is an Australian native tree commonly found from Central to North West Queensland. It is also known as "false sandalwood".
Oil from the tree is not new but a sustainable supply is. In the past, limited amounts of hexane extracted material was available but only produced on a small-scale. Today with the support of the local authorities a new purpose built steam distillation plant exists which can provide consistent qualities, sustainable raw material supply and the chance to further expand capacities.
The tree itself can grow anything up to 10 metres in height and is wild harvested. It likes the drier sand / soil type which is why it thrives naturally towards the desert areas of Australia.
As a new woody base note in any perfume, combined with its natural fixative properties this unique odour profile could form the basis of many new fragrances today and for the years to come.
The processing and production of buddhawood continues at a healthy pace. Several players are focusing their attention and effort towards ensuring a reliable supply of wood with a view to augment oil production. The coming six months look encouraging with oil production set to go up. One of the bigger producers has been working on maintaining continuous steady supply. It is heartening to note that in the wake of some new formulations introduced by some key players, the market has witnessed a rise in the enquiries for buddhawood oil. The segment has seen the rekindling of interest and is gaining traction in the market.
