Muhu Who . . . ?
Muhuhu! Muhuhu is a native tree to Kenya. There it is steam distilled into an essential oil commonly called African Sandalwood. Though it is not a true relative of the famous Indian or Australian Sandalwood, it is often used as a more affordable substitute. For me, its scent is gentler and distinct; reminding me of a blend of sandalwood and cedarwood.

Though African Muhuhu is softer than Indian or Australian sandalwood, it has many wonderful healing qualities. It is helpful for pain or swelling, and is great for massage blends. It is effective to relieve stress and tension, and can be used in a massage or diffused for this purpose.

It is traditionally used for fungal or bacterial infections of the skin. It is also effective for relieving chronic coughs, congestion, bronchitis and sinusitis. It is also helpful in diffusion to neutralize the affects of mold in the environment.

For a massage blend: mix 10% muhuhu and balsam copaiba (equal parts) in 90% carrier oil of your choice. It is calming and relieves tension, stress, pain and inflammation.

Diffuse for stress and relaxation; or chronic coughs, congestion, bronchitis or sinusitis.
