INFOS AND INTERESTING FACTS

Rich in alpha-Santalol.

Our Yellow sandalwood essential oil sustainably replaces the white Sandalwood from Mysore in India (Santalum album), whose wood exploitation has been banned due to over exploitation. (Santalum album is now a protected species, under strict conservation laws). Yellow sandalwood essential oil has the same properties and efficiency as the white sandalwood (Santalol). Our essential oil comes from Agro-forestry plantations in New Caledonia, where the rich, aromatic oil is distilled after wood trimming maintenance operations.

MORE INFORMATION

ATTENTION: True Sandalwood are trees from the genius SANTALUM. Sandalwoods have been revered for the beauty and durability of their wood material itself, and for the long-lasting and highly aromatic quality of the essential oils they produce. 

 

Several different species of Sandalwood are grown commercially throughout the world, that all have different concentration in Santalol (cis-Alpha Santalol & cis-Beta Santalol)), the aromatic molecule responsible for the beneficial properties of sandalwood essential oils. 

 

It is those concentrations in Santalol that will dictate the sandalwood essential oils aromatic quality and choice of applications: Aromatherapy, Skincare and emotional well-being formulations, high end cosmetics, luxurious Natural perfumery, or fragrance industry.

 

Historically and to this day (2021), Indian Sandalwood, the Santalum album ORIGINATING FROM INDIA still detains the record in Santalol concentration.

Kinda sad about this one

I've been using sandalwood for over a decade. When Mysore became practically unavailable I switched to New Caledonian and have been lucky to smell some really good ones, as well as some not so good ones. Of course natural products vary a lot, but unfortunately I'm pretty sure this isn't real S. austrocaledonicum. There's maybe the slightest bit of santalol, a lot of amyris, and a hint of something minty. It's nice enough, but it isn't sandalwood. I'm still obsessed with eOil's products and absolutely amazing service and will always recommend them above any other local supplier, but unfortunately this one's a miss.

Hi Drew. Thank you for taking the time to review our oils and to give others your insights. It is always much appreciated.
We are sorry this product wasn't up to your expectation and we hope that the next batch of S. austrocaledonicum will receive your better reviews.
Like you pointed out correctly, natural batches may vary a lot.
Your reviews, encouragement and support are always valued and welcome.
