AUSTRALIA. Sandalwood (Santalum spicatum) Essential Oil, Steam Distilled
There is nothing quite like the smell of Sandalwood: soft, woody, and earthy, with a grounding quality. It is considered a base note for blending purposes.
Sandalwood is a popular scent in men's skin care products, and its actions against bacteria, fungi, and the effects of aging make it highly functional as well as pleasing for this role. The scent is said to enhance meditative states, quieting the mind, and also to act as an aphrodisiac. A study conducted with human subjects exposed to experimental stress showed reduced blood pressure and cortisol levels with inhalation of S. spicatum essential oil.
Our essential oils are sold in amber glass bottles with a dropper orifice for drop-by-drop administration. Do not ingest essential oils unless under the guidance of a licensed health care practitioner or experienced aromatherapist. Essential oils should always be diluted in a carrier oil before being applied to the skin. (Some examples of carrier oils: Jojoba, Sunflower, Grapeseed, Rosehip Seed, Castor, and Avocado; gently liquified Coconut Oil, Shea, or Cocoa Butter can also work for creating thicker body care products.) Always test the diluted essential oil on a small patch of skin before applying more widely.
The maximum recommended strength for topical use of Australian Sandalwood essential oil is 15% (fifteen drops per teaspoon of carrier oil).
