Guide - Sandalwood EO
Widespread in southwest Australia, it grows in symbiosis with a plant in its environment, mainly of the genus Eucalyptus or Acacia.
Experimentally distilled for the first time in 1875, Australian sandalwood essential oil began to be produced sporadically by a few small Australian distilleries. As the essential oil became more and more popular, the exploitation of the wild tree intensified. It became one of the most important sources of income for the economy of Western Australia, and also allowed for the development of the interior.
Sandalwood is often used as a torch by fishermen. It is known as “candle wood or candlelight” because of the high oil content of the wood, which allows good combustion.
It has many other names: West Indian sandalwood, Nepalese sandalwood, candle tree, West Indian sandalwood.
