Eremophila mitchellii was named in 1848 by botanist George Bentham, after Sir Thomas Mitchell, who led the discovery expedition into Australia. No less than 17 species of Eremophila have roots in Aboriginal use. The species mitchellii is noted as having ‘general medicinal purposes’.
Eremophila mitchellii occurs in the arid regions of New South Wales, Queensland and South Australia. The tree, very common in Western Queensland, is often confused with Santalum lanceolatum R. Br., both trees being commonly referred to as False Sandalwood. Initial research was done through the School of Pharmacy, Griffith University, Gold Coast campus, QLD, Australia. It is considered somewhat invasive, though native to Australia, with over 215 species.
The scented wood is burnt for its pleasant aroma. The oil has also been used for perfumery, bath, massage, diffuser, blending, and a perfume fixative. The rare sesquiterpene compounds lend anti- inflammatory properties to this rare and unique oil. This woody scented oil provides deep relaxation to body, mind and spirit. The eremophilanes reportedly inhibit P388D1 cancer cell growth in vitro.
