Typically known as Indian Sandalwood or East Indian Sandalwood, Santalum album is the most revered and prized species of Sandalwood due to the exquisite aroma of its heartwood and its historical significance in perfumery.
Sandalwood belongs to the Santalaceau plant family. The heartwood of this cherished evergreen tree is thought to be one of the first aromatics used by mankind.
Known for its deep, woody, sultry aroma, the heartwood and its essential oil have been used throughout history for its spiritual, emotional, therapeutic, cosmetic and fragrancing applications.
Ethical and Sustainable Sourcing:
Santalum album is classified as a vulnerable species with declining population by The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species (International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources).
Several other species of sandalwood trees are utilized to produce essential oil and powder. However, no other species captures the exquisite aroma and aromatic depth that Indian Sandalwood possess. For decades, the significant demand, over-exploitation and illegal extraction of Indian sandalwood trees lead to its endangerment and continued vulnerability.
