About the Oil

This essential oil is created by steam distilling the heartwood of Sandalwood trees wild grown and sustainable harvested in Australia.

NOTE: It is common to find oils distilled from the wood of S. lanceolatum and Eremophila mitchelli to be sold in the marketplace labeled as "Sandalwood" essential oil, however neither the aromatic compounds and medicinal attributes are similar enough to true Sandalwood to act as a substitute.

Aromatherapy Notes

Sandalwood oil has a softer aroma compound than the austrocaledonicum or album varieties. It has a mildly mandarin blossom and jasmine top note, a soft, herbaceous middle note and musty, syrup-like and musk-like undertones. It remains a masculine scent, yet this variety and distillation leans into a rounder and more floral composition.

Sandalwood makes a wonderful natural perfume without any blending, yet it will harmonize well with: Eucalyptus radiata, Basil, Peppermint, Vanilla, and Pine Oil.

Sandalwood is used extensively in natural perfumery as a base note and fixative; it also acts to harmonize other aromas without overpowering them.

Traditional Uses

Long before its therapeutic qualities were known, Sandalwood essential oil was used in yogic and other meditative practices to harness stillness of mind, and unity of being. A history of 4,000 years of use, Sandalwood essential oil is one of the oldest known perfume components. It has also been employed in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries as a skin tonic and mental balancing agent.
