Sandalwood is an amazingly powerful and versatile essential oil with one of the most desired aromas known to man. Unfortunately, thousands of years of over-forestation and illegal poaching have made the Mysore region Santalum Album virtually impossible to obtain legally due to diminishing supply and stringent exportation restrictions by the Indian Government.

 

Historical Uses:

Sandalwood’s powerful medicinal properties have been known for over 5000 years. It is possibly the most versatile essential oil, as it’s known historically to treat hundreds of ailments ranging from heart health to healing scars; however, it’s best known for its powerful ability to calm and relax the mind and body. This is likely why it became such an important element in many religious practices and ceremonies.

 

Our Sandalwood:

Sandalwood is an amazingly powerful and versatile essential oil with one of the most desired aromas known to man. Unfortunately, thousands of years of over-forestation and illegal poaching have made the Mysore region Santalum Album virtually impossible to obtain legally due to diminishing supply and stringent exportation restrictions by the Indian Government.

 

We have been fortunate enough to partner up with a plantation and distiller in Australia who imported Santalum Album trees from the Mysore region several decades ago and are now producing a sustainable and renewable essential oil which is of the highest quality we’ve ever sampled. While it is grown, harvested, and distilled in Australia, it is not “Australian Sandalwood”, but “East Indian Sandalwood”. Most sandalwood harvested in Australia is from a different species of tree (Santalum Spicatum), which bears drastically different constituents and aromas and is much less desirable.

 

The aroma is distinctly similar to the Mysore sandalwood we carried in the past, but is a bit sweeter and not as deep. Our current batch was recently distilled and will continue to mature with a deeper aroma as it ages.

 

By Faith Essential Oils:

By Faith Essential Oils are the simply the highest quality essential oils available online. We are a massage therapy / aromatherapy clinic in Texas who needed top quality essential oils to use in our clinic, but was unable to locate any on the market which met our standards at reasonable prices. We then began purchasing oils directly from the best farms, distillers, and distributors in the world, purchasing, testing, and rejecting hundreds of samples along the way in pursuit of only the best, and have began using them in our clinic as well as selling directly to our customers in 2015. We only sell directly to consumers or wholesale to pharmacies, which is how we can we can offer higher quality at lower prices. We have no distributors or middlemen. We advertise as "Clinical Grade", as we consistently test to prove higher quality and higher purity than the companies claiming "Therapeutic Grade".
