Eremophila resinosa was declared as Rare Flora in 1982 under the Western Australian Wildlife Conservation Act 1950 and is currently ranked as Endangered (EN) under World Conservation Union (IUCN 1994) Red List criterion C2a due to population size being less than 2500 mature individuals, with continuing decline observed and no subpopulation estimated to contain more than 250 mature individuals. The main threats are road, rail and firebreak maintenance, farming operations including grazing and fence maintenance, weeds, degradation of habitat through activities such as traffic and rubbish dumping, inappropriate fire regimes, low seed set and poor recruitment. Eremophila resinosa is listed as Endangered (EN) under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act).
Eremophila resinosa is known from 26 natural populations and 1418 plants in the central eastern Wheatbelt of Western Australia.
Fourteen populations and twelve subpopulations of Eremophila resinosa occur on road reserves (Populations 3, 5-12, 15, 18-20 and 22; Subpopulations 1a-c, 2a-c, 4b, 14a-b, 16b, 17a-b), one subpopulation on rail reserve (Subpopulation 4a), one population on private property (Population 21) and three populations and one subpopulation on shire reserves (Population 13, 23 and 24; Subpopulations 16a).
