About the Plant
A small evergreen tree growing up to 25 feet high when mature, Australian sandalwood has a brown-grey trunk and many branches. At one time, Sandalwood was used for making furniture and caskets as well as building temples. The wood was prized for its scent, its strength and its resistance to insects.
Australian Sandalwood Oil represents an ecologically responsible and economical alternative to the more exotic and expensive Indian Sandalwood Oil. Amrita’s oil is produced in a sustainable, environmentally responsible manner through ethically managed plantations. Western Australia is home to the world's largest sustainable sandalwood reserve, covering 1.6 million square kilometers (approximately three times the size of France).
Sandalwood Oil is frequently used in high-end fragrances and natural perfumery and is enjoyed by both men and women. It is most often used as a base note and helps round out blends
