Muhuhu African Sandalwood, Wild 10 ml


Brachyleana hutchinsii - Kenya

Also known as African Sandalwood, Muhuhu oil possesses the aroma of fresh cut wood straight from Kenya. The sweet, balsamic undertones in Muhuhu oil round out its woody, faintly smoky side that can be similar to a combination of Cedarwood and Vetiver. The balsamic aroma and woody note gives Muhuhu oil a somewhat similar aroma to Sandalwood, hence the name African sandalwood. However, it's not considered a replacement for true Sandalwood oils.

For years, Muhuhu oil's enticing woody smokiness has been used to calm stress. Like many other woody essential oils, Muhuhu oil improves with age.

Our beautifully rich and warm Muhuhu essential oil comes from its native Kenya and is steam distilled.


In addition to India, Sandalwood grows in Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, western Australia and various Pacific Islands, including Vanuatu and New Caledonia

Extraction: Sandalwood essential oil is created from the steam distillation of the core wood, also called the “heartwood” of the tree

Sandalwood is considered to exert the following therapeutic actions: analgesic, antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, antiseptic, aphrodisiac, astringent, bactericidal, diuretic, emollient, expectorant, insecticidal, sedative and tonic.

Sandalwood is clarifying and stilling for the mind, “diminishing the tyranny of the intellect, of the incessant need to overthink, it instills in its place an experience of inner unity –a state where body, mind and Spirit can realign as one”. Sandalwood helps us “zoom out” to a spiritual-unity consciousness while simultaneously guiding us deeper and deeper into an embodied experience in this now timeless moment.

Therapeutic status: Mild remedy with no cumulative toxicity. Topical Safety Status: Non skin-irritant, non-sensitizing
