Organic Sandalwood in New Zealand

The precious Organic Sandalwood Oil from Vanuatu is reminiscent of both East Indian and Australian Sandalwood oil. The aroma is , rich, woody, warm and sweet and also at a fraction of the cost – now that is inviting.

Organic Sandalwood Oil (Santalum austrocaledonicum ) from the island of Erromango in Vanuatu is fast becoming a preferred choice of sandalwood experts.  (Erromango is one of the worst affected islands, by Cyclone Pam in March 2015.  Lav Kokonas has supported the regeneration of their gardens with donation of Organic seeds).

Sandalwood Oil is widely used in cosmetic and perfumery industries and by skin care formulators.  The essential oil of Sandalwood contains antibacterial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and anti-spasmodic characteristics. Sandalwood has been used in the South Pacific islands for over hundreds of years, where it has been used for perfumery and burning, to create a relaxing ambiance.

East Indian Sandalwood is known as the crème de le crème of Sandalwood Oils, but not everyone can afford the exorbitant price tag that goes with it.  Try this comparable Sandalwood Oil from the pristine isles of Vanuatu, at a fraction of the cost, and I’m sure you will be pleased with your choice.
