Organic Sandalwood Essential Oil


Certified USDA Organic

USDA Organic

Some thirty species of sandalwood occur throughout Asia, Australia and the Pacific region, six of which are native to Australia. This species is presently harvested in the Goldfields region of Western Australia, under strict controls. The evergreen is parasitic, burrowing its roots into nearby trees to gain sustenance for the first seven years, leaving the other to die. To produce oil this tree must be over 30 years old, preferably around 40-50 years when it has reached its peak for oil production. The high value of the wood and the oil has led to a steady decline of native sandalwood trees thus increasing efforts to establish plantations. New Directions Aromatics sources the oil by ethical means, which includes state-sponsored auctions. Sandalwood originally comes from the Sanskrit word candanam, borrowed by the Greeks as sandanon. The documented use of Sandalwood goes back 4000 years to India, Egypt, Greece and Rome when many temples and structures were built with it. Because of over-harvesting, this practice has steadily decreased to the point where Sandalwood is now only used for its oil.

This oil was definitely not the best quality Sandalwood oil I've bought, but in a diffuser, it did scent the room.


normally sandalwood essential oil is expensive...i mean really expensive (especially a bottle this big). i decided to give it a try with low hopes.... wow! it is amazing! it only needs 5-6 drops in a 120ml diffuser and the aroma fills the entire house for hours. no other essential oil has filled the house (maybe a small room). it does not smell cheap in any way. Ver happy with this purchase
