Buddha Wood essential oil / Precious woods, Mossy, Leathery, Creamy / $60 oz.

Eremophila is an important desert genuswhich is widely utilisedby Aborigines in Australia. Early into thelife of an Aborigine, Eremophila plant parts were utilised, as illustrated by the use of cleansing a new born child with the infusion of leaves(E.longifolia) to strengthen it for life's  struggles ahead. Throughout an Aborigines' life, Eremophila shrubs would be sought for their medicinal qualities. During tribal movements, dried foliage of E.akernifola may be found amongst the few possesions caried in case of emergencies. They were incorporated in cultural rites, as well as for the worship of their feared and loved totemic ancestors, whom they were propitiating and whose godwill they were drawing upon themselves by carrying out these  traditional rites(Strehlow1971). For the young Aboriginal male, Eremophila species were used in the elaborate and complex ceremonies which took him from boyhood to manhood. Finally in death, Eremophila species were involved in ceremonial rites,with branches lining the graves and shrouding the bodies during the burial ceremony.
