Originally from tropical Asia (especially southern India, Sri Lanka and Malaysia), Sandalwood is an evergreen parasitic plant that grows to a height of nine metres. It has a greyish-brown trunk, smooth, slender branches, leathery leaves and purple-pink flowers. Only trees aged thirty years or more can yield the essential oil.
Sandalwood is currently a protected species.
The essential oil is obtained by steam distillation of the dried, pulverized wood. It is a viscous, light yellow liquid with a sweetish, woody fragrance that's very tenacious. It combines well with benzoin absolute and the essential oils of Agarwood, Ambrette, Clary sage, Cypress, Copaiba, Ginger, Juniper, Lavender, Palmarosa, Patchouli, Rose, Sweet myrrh, Ylang-ylang and Vetiver.
