Sandalwood essential oil (Santalum austrocaledonicum)

Sandalwood (Santalum album) (Santalum austrocaledonicum)

A warming and relaxing oil.  Woodchips are burned by middle eastern brides to relax their husbands on honeymoon.  We provide a sandalwood aftershave balm which is very popular.  One of the great oils for skincare it finds its way into soap.  A very expensive oil we have to work quite hard on the sourcing. Quality from India varies from the best to the worst as it is frequently derived from trees imported from Indonesia.  We stock and recommend Sandalwood oil from sustainable plantations in New Caledonia for its consistency. We also recommend Australian sandalwood.
