“When you react to others with aggression and irritation, it is time to reach for sandalwood.” (Fisher-Rizzi S. Complete aromatherapy handbook. Sterling Publishing Company, USA, 1990.)
Sandalwood Australian Essential Oil is extracted from the heartwood of a native Australian tree. It is a parasitic tree that takes up to thirty years to produce oil. The tree grows slowly. It can take 50-90 years to reach commercial size. Santalum spicatum essential oil was unavailable in Australia for over 30 years. Sandalwood Australian is the finest, rarest, and most exotic of the Australian Sandalwoods. The Essential Oil is obtained by a combination of solvent extraction and steam distillation of the wood. The color of the oil is pale yellow to yellow. It has a soft, woody, extremely tenacious aroma and is somewhat balsamic in its delicate sweetness. The top note is different from Sandalwood East Indian. It is not as sweet but slightly resinous, like myrrh. The level of constituents is very close to the traditional East Indian Sandalwood Essential Oil. Therefore, it is considered an excellent alternative in all applications.
For those of you who would like to enjoy the exquisite aroma and wonderful properties of AUROMA Sandalwoos Essential Oil at a more affordable price, you can find it right here on-line at The Aromatherapy Place as a 5% dilution in Jojoba. The high cost of this essential oil is largely due to the substantial volume of natural product required in the distillation process.
“The future of S. spicatum is very promising. It has a chemical profile similar to that of S. album. As the supply of S. album becomes more restrictive and costly, the popularity of Australian sandalwood in aromatherapy will increase.” (Bataglia S. The complete guide to aromatherapy. The International Centre for Aromatherapy, Brisbane, Australia, 2nd Edition, 1997, AUS”
NOTE: Essential oil is produced through the traditional methods, using the heart wood. No useful part of the tree is wasted, including the roots. The dead trees are cut or pushed down, and the roots are pulled from the ground. For a period, this Sandalwood was listed as a protected species. This was a temporary measure, to ensure that the tree would be available to the descendants of all Australians. Harvesting is now strictly controlled.

Basil, Black Pepper, Geranium, Frankincense, Lavender, Lemon, Neroli, Rose and Vetiver.
Whenever you use Essential Oils or 100% pure Essential Oil Blends on the skin, they should be diluted in a vegetable oil. However, always check for skin sensitivity before applying the finished product to the body. See “Cautions” below.
Suggested Dilution Rates follow:
Please ensure that the total number of drops does not exceed the dilution ratio. For example: 2.5% dilution = 1 drip Geranium, 2 drops Palmarosa & 2 drops Mandarin diluted in 10ml Jojoba Oil. Total drops = 5
Sandalwood is non-toxic. It is a very mild skin irritant which does not cause skin sensitization or phototoxicity. (Tisserand R, Bolacs T, Essential oil safety. Churchill Livingston, UK)
The Aromatherapy Place does not recommend ingesting essential oils unless a specific dosage instruction is given to a consumer by a qualified medical practitioner.
Do not apply directly to skin. May case skin irritation in some individuals. Always dilute with a carrier oil. A skin test is recommended prior to use on the skin.
Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition, consult a health professional prior to use. Keep away from eyes and mucous membranes.
