Sandalwood, Australian - Premium
Our premium Sandalwood from Australia is a little lighter than typical sandalwood. It has fresh undertones, yet is deeper and woodier than other Australian Sandalwood oils. This Sandalwood grows naturally in Western Australia, where the West Australian Forests Products Commission (FPC) manages the sustainable harvesting of Sandalwood in the forests.
Sandalwood is revered for its sweet, warm, woody and rich aroma. It is widely sought after in body care, skin care, natural perfumes, and incense for its beautiful fragrance and calming effects. Used in India for centuries in religious and spiritual practices, as well as in traditional medicine for thousands of years, Sandalwood is a well-respected oil.
The Sandalwood most recognized is the Santalum album oil from the Mysore region of India. It is pretty well know these days that this Sandalwood has become virtually extinct due to years of over harvesting and poaching. The good news is that this created a need for cultivating various species of Sandalwood using more sustainable practices to meet consumer demand for this popular oil.
Eden Botanicals offers a wide variety of species of Sandalwood from around the globe to fit your budget and needs. We source our oils from reputable sources that are ethically harvesting the trees so this precious resource can be sustained. If you are unsure of which Sandalwood to order, we offer a sampler pack so you can experience each one prior to committing to purchase.

- A wonderful sandalwood and an excellent price Review by ArtScent
- I have worked with many sandalwoods, from differing regions and companies and have to say that this premium Australian sandalwood is one of the best. It has the expected greenness in the top and a rich buttery wood finish. I have also found this sandalwood to be very well priced for natural sandalwood and even other Australian sandalwoods on the market. I highly recommend it. (Posted on 3/20/13)
