Product Description

Santalum album

Grown and distilled in Indonesia

This is the closest to real Indian sandalwood that we have seen in ages. In fact, botanically it is the same, Santalun album. The difference is that it's grown in Indonesia. Usually sandalwood oils from other places are a poor and sad imitation of the past warm voluptuousness of delicious Indian oil. This Indonesian retains some of the past glory of Indian Mysore sandalwood oil.

Sandalwood is one of those oils that really doesn't need to do anything. It's spectacular enough just being sandalwood. Creamy soft sweet and lovely, sandalwood is no amateur essential oil! Even though this oil is not the same warm heaven you get from the old Mysore stock, it is lovely and soft and warm and delicious. It doesn't smell like much of the sandalwood found these days, from Australia, Vanuatu and other places, and please don't come whining that I disrespected those oils. They are perfectly adequate, so long as you remember to say Australian Sandalwood, instead of just sandalwood. But if you are leaning in that direction, then why not try Amyris?

This is not going to be as spectacular as the aged Mysore left in someone's closet for 65 years, no. But it's a beautiful warm, lovely oil. And sandalwood does do stuff. It's a great oil to meditate with and just putting a drop on your third eye can help bring you right down to where you need to be.

Sandalwood is also a welcoming nest for any floral, gentle yet still maintaining it's vivacity.

Sandalwood blends with anything and everything. But here are some suggestions: Jasmine sambac, Jasmine grandiflorum, rose abs, rose otto, patchouli, ylang ylang, spikenard, frankincense, myrrh
