Buddawood Oil Australia Eremophila mitchellii

  • Description

    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 small figwort buddawood is native to Australia. It requires dry sand or soil to prosper, and that’s why it flourishes in the desert areas of Australia. Buddawood oil is an economical and sustainable alternative to similar products in the market. While the supply of hexane extracted material from Eremophila Mitchelli was limited in the past, today consistent supplies are available. This has been made possible by the support of local authorities, which have aided the development of advanced steam distillation facilities. These new methods of production have resulted in a change of the oil colour. It is now a slightly lighter shade of brown than its original form. The current market showcases steady progress in sales and production, and a healthy rate of increase. Currently, the supply is running higher than the demand
