Oil Summary: Santalol-rich East Indian Sandalwood essential oil is generally considered to be one of the highest quality sandalwood oils available. Due to unsustainable forestry practices in India, availability has diminished and the price has risen substantially. Since it is a very slow-growing tree, taking a minimum of 10 years before it can be harvested, this situation will not likely change anytime soon even if sustainability regulations were to be strictly followed. The best East Indian sandalwood essential oils present as a clear yellow-brown and extremely viscous liquid.

Botanical Name: Santalum Album Lin

Plant Origin: India

Processing Method: Steam distillation

Plant Part: Trees-Roots

Odor and Color: Sandalwood oil is highly viscous and has a long-lasting, sweet and woody scent that it gets from santalol, the main aromatic component found in the sandalwood tree.

Main Constituents: A-Santalol,, CIS–Santalol, CIS-EPI-Santalol Bergamotol, EPI -Santalol,Nuciferol and B-Santalene.

Blends well with: Frankincense, Geranium, Grapefruit, Clary Sage, Ylang Ylang, Roman Chamomile, Rose, Cinnamon, Patchouli, Bergamot, Ginger, Nutmeg and Clove.

Contraindication: Sandalwood itself does not come with any severe contraindications. It is one of only a handful of essential oils that is considered to be completely safe for topical use. Until you know your tolerance, it is tremendously important never to apply the undiluted oil directly to your skin or take internally unless you are under the direct supervision of a qualified practitioner who is certified in aromatherapy. Essential oils are highly concentrated, and when applied directly to the skin they have the potential to cause severe irritation. Always abide by recommended dilution guidelines, and if using topically for the first time, do a patch test on a small area of skin before applying liberally.

If you are pregnant or suspect that you might be, you should consult a physician before starting aromatherapy treatment. Similarly, if you suffer from allergies you should exercise great caution, as many carrier oils are nut-based and can cause severe anaphylaxis.

    I was hesitant at first to purchase this Sandalwood oil because of the bargain price (you get what you pay for). Then I saw this company advertised on Ouddict.com and was confident the product would be 100% authentic since I’ve come to believe “Ouddicts” can smell a botanical fake a mile a way and would never allow fakes to be proffered among brothers and sisters on the website.
    I have been collecting Sandalwood oils since 1990 and of this I can say with some authority:
    “Here is a young Santal, generous in her concentration of santolol; she is slightly sharp at first – as are most immature Sandalwood oils – but I’m confident this will dissipate with aging in a couple of years (I’ve had a reliable company supply me with a very sharp young Mysore Santal that finally gives over to the very best creaminess in drydown after nearly 10 years of maturation). This particular oil is ready-to-go to use in any perfume formula. For top shelf perfumes, this oil will no doubt be ready as THE PERFECT SANDALWOOD within two years. A sound contemporary ingredient as well as a much more wise investment!”

    My parents are from the Mysore/Karnataka region of India where the highest quality of sandalwood has been cultivated for centuries. Good sandalwood is incredibly hard to find but this product ranks up there with the best ive found in years. It is a pure unadulterated concentrate with a wonderful smell. It took just 3 drops to transform a 2oz bottle of sweet almond oil.
    A highly recommended product.

    Has a nice fragrance but I wish it was stronger it may just need some time to age. They say that it gets better with age

    This essential oil is as described by uh*Roh*Muh. I find it very high quality, real East Indian Sandalwood essential oil. The fragrance is better than any sandalwood I’ve found in several years.

    This Sandalwood oil is exactly what I have been looking for. It’s its light texture and aroma are perfect
    for my biochemistry. Its just right… So I continue to shop with uh*Roh*Muh, they always have it in stock when I order and they deliver promptly by mail.
    (This is a true story from a very satisfied customer in NYC).

    I received this Indian Sandalwood oil a couple days ago and I’ve had a chance to evaluate it. I’ve worn it behind my ears,on my hands ,my arm and beard and must say this is a really nice spicy deep relaxing Sandalwood oil.
    It puts me in such a blissful mood. I just love it!

    purchased Mysore Sandalwood from Miracle Botanicals a year or two ago, the very best and strongest in my opinion, lasted for hours, unfortunately no longer available from them, yours is very similar in spicy fragrance but seems weaker, more diluted in comparison but still better than most
