(Santalum Album-Indian Sandalwood Oil)
Sandalwood needs no introduction. India is synonymous with the world's finest sandalwood native to its south, especially to the Mysore region. While there are innumerable synthetic "sandalwood" oils in India's fragrance market, few are lucky to bless their olfactory with the woody, rich, creamy, therapeutic scent of pure sandalwood oil extracted from the sandalwood tree barks through ancient Indian distillation techniques. It is this great wood and its sublime oil that command a lofty pedestal in the Vedas, the Ashtagandha and other ancient Indian classical spiritual texts and ceremonies.
