Your Sheoak Essential Oil Box is a new addition to our essential oil box collection, we introduce our special wooden boxes made from Australian timbers.
This exquisite Sheoak Essential Oil Box is hand made from West Australian recycled Sheoak or Allocasuarina fraseriana. Found growing wild and in small farm forestry parcels in the south coastal areas of the state, these unique trees whisper a special message. When the wind blows the fine needles of the sheoaks seem to be sending magical messages to the air.
Much of the wild sheoak in the past was used as building materials. Very hardy and strong, making solid flooring and structures for buildings, posts and furniture. Sheoak doesn’t attract white ants which can destroy the stumps of wooden buildings and found to be between the walls gnawing away until the building is rendered uninhabitable.
Now the wood is too precious to be used for those purposes so you will find it mostly in galleries as fine furniture.
The wood from our essential oil boxes comes from a dismantled wool shed in the Albany region of south western West Australia. The buildings needed to be solid to handle the rough passage of sheep during shearing time. Well cured and shaved to show the unique fiddle wood grain which the species is famous for, these boxes make special additions to your essential oil collection.
Also a perfect gift for someone who appreciates our beautiful timbers.
