Sandalwood Indian Essential Oil is steam distilled from the heart wood of Santalum album plantation grown trees in East India. Sandalwood Indian Essential Oil, Santalum album, is in such high demand that the trees of India were pushed almost to the brink of extinction, creating governmental control that limited the availability of Indian Sandalwood essential oil, for many years. The East Indian is now available again. We do, still, encourage, limiting your use of this precious oil, as much as possible, to avoid another shortage. The difference, in fragrance impact, between this and the Australian Sandalwood, is significant, with the Indian having a musky note that is not present in the Australian. We have found that we can mix the Sandalwood Indian Essential Oil, Santalum album, with the Sandalwood Australian, at only 10 to 20%, and still get the Indian musky influence in the final blend.
Therapeutic Use: Sandalwood Indian Essential Oil, Santalum album, has many uses in skin, bath, and body care. It is well known for its supportive effect on the tissues, being effective for dry, chapped, cracked skin and even rashes and acne. Truly suitable for all skin types. Sandalwood Indian Essential Oil is also one of the most effective essential oils for use in meditation, where it slows the breathing, and supports deeper concentration, and connection. In Aromatherapy Sandalwood Indian Essential Oil, Santalum album, is used extensively in meditation blends, as well as for sensitive skin. Also a must for perfuming work, where it gives the blend a deep, almost musky note, without a significant fragrance change.
Fragrance Impact: The fragrance of Sandalwood Indian Essential Oil, Santalum album, stands alone. It has a sweet woody scent that is warm and rich, with a, definite, musky note.

It is one of the most powerful fixatives available in essential oils and Aromatherapy. Adding Sandalwood Indian Essential Oil to your products will give them a deeply calming impact.
