Description: In blending Muhuhu adds a woody smokiness not unlike Indonesian Vetiver, albeit a much finer aroma. Like many other woody essential oils its aroma will improve with age.

Actions: While few definitive studies have been documented Muhuhu oil probably shares the therapeutic properties of other sesquiterpenes. Oils in this class are reputed to be antifungal, analgesic, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, antibacterial, cicatrizing, cooling, grounding, hypotensive, sedative and warming. Since other sesquiterpenes derived from wood are cedarwood and sandalwood it is likely Muhuhu aromatherapy will evolve in this direction.
