Buddha Wood Product Sheet

Buddha Wood Oil is a rare, cherished oil that is steam distilled from a small tree native to Australia. Also known as Australian Desert Rosewood, Buddha Wood has a deep, woody aroma; a thick, viscous texture; and a deep amber hue.

This remarkably balancing and grounding oil enriches meditative practice and supports the mindset of those who wish to stay present. Buddha Wood Oil is sometimes used in place of the more common Sandalwood,but it contains unique components.

Additionally, its scent is distinct from Sandalwood with notes of smoke and rose. Buddha Wood Oil is often used in perfumery, especially in refined cologne for men.

To learn more about our Buddha Wood's uses and benefits, check out our Buddha Wood essential oil spotlight blog post.

To encourage peace and relaxation or to support meditation, diffuse Buddha Wood Oil for 30 minutes.

For a DIY masculine 10 ml roller cologne, blend 10 drops Buddha Wood with 3 drops Bergamot and 3 drops Patchouli and top with Fractionated Coconut Oil.

Buddha Wood Oil blends well with a wide range of citrus, woodsy and spicy oils and makes a great addition to soaps and lotions.

For topical application, dilute to 2-5%.

1.0 5  This smells like dirt,sorry PT

This was on my wish list for a long time. The description says it's been used in place of sandalwood! I love sandalwood, won't be without PTs sandalwood, Cedarwood ,Rose and Ho Wood. I've tried this twice but my husband ask that I please get rid of Buddha wood . He likes and uses oils with me,but I agree with him on this one. Not sure what to do with it now.

recommend  No, I wouldn't recommend this to a friend.

5.0 5  Buddha wood

This is a super subtle yet beautiful smell. It reminds me of a forest floor but I am not sure why. It is distinctly different from cedarwood and sandalwood and is a great addition to my collection

5.0 5  Improves with age

I originally purchased Buddha Wood as part of the OOTM and I didn't like it too much - it seemed very bitter and pungent. That same bottle with just a few drops gone has sat, forlornly, among my essential oil collection since that date. Fortunately, resinous oils sometimes improve in scent with age and do not oxidize quickly... I pulled it out this morning and thought I'd give it another try. The bitterness had faded, and sweet, smoky notes were prominent - lovely! I made a perfume blend with Buddha Wood, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Muhuhu, Jasmine, and Tangerine. This oil definitely plays well with other base notes, and helps top notes shine. I just purchased the 30 ml size because I know I will be reaching for this oil often in the future!
