Botanical Name:
An evergreen and often resinous shrub to small tree ( 3-8 meters) in height. Grows in may areas predominantly found on Western slopes and plains of New South Wales, Queensland, and South Australia. Exhibits dark, rough bark, with hairless leaves that are bright green and aromatic. The scented wood is burnt for its pleasant aroma.

Oil Characteristics:
Buddha Wood occurs in the arid areas of New South Wales, Queensland and South Australia. The tree, very common in Western Queensland, is often confused with Santalum lanceolatum known as Australian sandalwood. The logs, after reduction to shavings, yield from 2-3% of a dark coloured viscous oil with a pleasant and characteristic odour. The oil, though dark in colour and neither a substitute nor an alternative for true sandalwood oil (Santalum album L.), possesses marked blending and fixative qualities.

Chemical Characteristics:
Its main components are three closely related sesquiterpene ketones - eremophilone; 2-hydroxyeremophilone; 2-hydroxy-2-dihydroeremophilone - none of which have ever before been discovered in nature. Chemcially related to Agar Wood. Class: Ketone. Almost 100% ketones. Eremphilone, hydroxyeremophilone, hydroxy dihydroeremophilone

Remarks:
There are several reports on the biological activity and ethnopharmacology of E. mitchellii in the literature. The plant has been used by the aboriginal people for the treatment of rheumatism (Low, 1990). Kerr (1951) demonstrated that the wood oil was virtually non-toxic as a fly spray but when incorporated with the pyrethrins it had an adjuvant action. Kerr observed that the wood oil produced a marked increase in fly 122 mortality in comparison to the pyrethrins alone. More recently Wilkinson and Cavanagh (2005) have reported on the antimicrobial activity of the wood oil against C. albicans and five different bacteria. The undiluted oil showed inhibition against Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella typhimurium, Alcaligenes faecalis and Candida albicans, no inhibition was observed against Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

No formal testing. Avoid use with pregnant women, children, and infants. May cause irritation to sensitive skin. Caution should be taken when using Essential Oils. Do not use any oils without consultation from a qualified aroma therapy practitioner. All Essential Oils should be kept out of the reach of children.
