Buddha wood essential oil uses
Buddha wood has a balsamic, smoky scent with hints of rose, and it’s widely used in the creation of cologne and scents for men. It’s commonly chosen as an alternative personal fragrance to sandalwood, although it’s far more rare than sandalwood essential oil.
It may be a little pricier than other essential oils, but buddha wood is packed with goodness for the mind, body, and spirit. Thanks to its ability to stabilise our thoughts and help us remain in the present moment, it’s a favourite oil in meditation recipes. Buddha wood oil blends particularly well with jasmine, lavender, patchouli, bergamot, rose geranium and of course, sandalwood.
