Sandalwood essential oil exudes one of the world’s most famous aromas and is a favorite for many religious, spiritual and personal rituals. Its distinctive aroma is reminiscent of antique wood, rich leather and very complex, warm notes suggesting earth, herbs and a regal stability.

Sandalwood is often the base oil in well-known colognes, perfumes and body care products. Exceptionally precious Hawaiian Sandalwood is best used conservatively in simple diffusion or mixed in a carrier oil.  Its subtle, yet sweet, rich and woodsy aroma blends well with flowery Jasmine, Orange and similar oils to balance its heavier presence. 

The legendary Sandalwood species of trees are all aromatic. They are found in India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka (Ceylon), Australia and Hawaii and other Pacific Islands. They all share similar chemistry and can be used interchangeably, depending on your specific preference for their very subtle aromatic characterizations. 

Hawaiian Sandalwood is called 'ili-ahi’ in Hawaiian and was considered a sacred, ceremonial plant used, secured and traded by Hawaiian royalty. It grows at higher elevations on the Big Island.
