Sandalwood (Santalum album) aka Indian sandalwood, known as the “king of woods” is grown in Australia in sustainable plantations made from the wood of plants grown on Ngarinyin land, Australia. This is a threatened species in Asia due to decades of over-harvesting and smuggling.

Santalum album essential oil is known to be the highest quality and has a rich woody, yet sweet aroma. Perfect for perfume, skincare and aromatherapy. The delicate soft woody scent of Santalum album oil has traditionally been used as an aid to meditation, prayer and spiritual practice. Our Santalum album is gold grade which means it's 100% pure. Gold grade also means its aroma is something like magic. It has a sweet, woody, slightly floral and balsamic fragrance that will clear your mind, help you focus and maybe even get you in the mood for romance. An easily-blended, grounding must-have for any collection. If you've used Australian Sandalwood Santalum spicatum oil,  the smell of this species is slightly different to that species.
