Sandalwood Essential Oil - Australia
This high quality sandalwood (Santalum spictacum) is wild harvested from the best sources of sandalwood heartwood in Australia. The high grade essential oil comes from a high alpha-sanatol heartwood which produces a smooth, deep, rich, sweet-balsamic, precious woods heartnote with excellent tenacity. Of equal importance, it is a renewable resource sandalwood.
The highly aromatic wood of the sandalwood tree is widely used in South Asia for religious and medicinal purposes and is a prime source of incense and perfumes. The small tree is native to East Asia but has been known in the sub-continent throughout the ages.
The exact origin of sandalwood is not known. It is probably native to the arc of islands in south-eastern Indonesia. Some believe that it is native to southern India, but it is usually believed that it was introduced here over 2,000 years ago.
Sandalwood is currently naturalized and distributed in South India, Sri Lanka, the Malay Archipelago, Northern Australia, China and Taiwan. In India, it is found in the drier parts of the country mainly in deciduous forests on the Western Ghats and Deccan Plateau.
