Sandalwood Essential Oil

Choose Size

Our plantation grown Sandalwood essential oil from New Caledonia is extremely warm, sweet and ultra smooth. This oil is rich in α-santalol, the constituent that gives Sandalwood its signature woody aroma and is responsible for much of the beneficial effects.

This austrocaledonicum species of Sandalwood, with its rich, precious wood aroma, provides a cost effective and sustainable alternative to endangered Indian Sandalwood oils. It's smooth, woody santalol aroma is rich and long lasting on a scent strip, resulting in a very long, deep, sweet-wood dry down. Iso-β-bisabolol, an active trace constituent with a strong floral, muguet-like, pleasant smell, was also detected in Sandalwood oils from New Caledonia.
