Buy Sandalwood Essential Oil – Online Australia
- Botanical name: Santalum Album
- Plant part: Wood
- Extraction method: Steam distillation
There are many species of true sandalwood trees with the best and well-known species, Santalum Album (Mysore), to originate from East India and the popular Santalum Spicatum species originating from Australia. Our sandalwood oil comes from the increasingly rare Mysore Sandalwood tree and is produced from the steam distillation of the chipped heartwood of the tree. Its exotic aroma is woody and earthy, rich but subtle and lingering.
Amongst many other benefits, sandalwood oil offers astringent and toning properties as well as providing relief for dry skin. It helps to hydrate and condition your skin and assists with restoring moisture to dry hair.
This sandalwood essential oil contains at least 70% santalol content.
It typically blends well with bergamot, black pepper, geranium, lavender, vetiver and ylang ylang essential oils.
For a cheaper alternative, try a sandalwood oil that comes from the West Indies. Note that the particular sandalwood species that this oil comes from is not the ‘true’ sandalwood tree.
