Sandalwood (New Caledonia) essential oil
UPDATE 12/17/18: The distiller will not have new stock available until mid-January 2019.
Santalum album. India and Indonesia are the two major producers and exporters of sandalwood oil. Sandalwood is native to Ceylon, India, Indonesia and their surrounding islands. The oil is an excellent base and fixative for other high grade perfumes. By itself it is a mild, long-lasting sweet perfume, but the perfume industry finds that it can blend well with other perfumes and does not impart its fragrance when used as a base. There are numerous products that use sandalwood oil.
Sandalwood oil is slightly thick, has a long shelf life and will actually get better as it ages. It has a characteristic sweet, woody odor which is widely employed in the fragrance industry, but more particularly in the higher-priced perfumes. It has excellent blending properties and the presence of a large proportion of high-boiling constituents in the oil (about 90 % santalols) also makes it valuable as a fixative for other fragrances. In India it is used in this manner for the manufacture of traditional attars such as rose attar; the delicate floral oils are distilled directly into sandalwood oil. Blends well with neroli, sweet orange, rose and benzoin. Flashpoint: 200F.

Nice and Soothing
Sandalwood has to be my go to favorite scent. I deal with over 10 different and unique sandalwood scents and blends. This sandalwood reminds me a lot of amyris, or indian sandalwood. I am going to try the CG other sandalwood essential oils next. A little bit of this oil stretches a long way and it is certainly worth the purchase.

This oil is splendid! It transports me to a magical world. I feel like travelling on a flying carpet, in the tales of the One Thousand and One Nights. It’s deep and complex. It has a warm creamy and suave wood scent that makes me fall in grace. It’s noble and majestic, slightly powdery. It is sooo beautiful. It is by far my favorite essential oil.

The art of patience!
Nice fragrance! Sandalwood oils is quite a thick consistency! Takes time and patience to get a few drops out of the bottle but well worth the wait. Using in a facial serum.

Best sandalwood EO
This is the best sandalwood essential oil that I have ever had the pleasure to smell. As usual, Camden-Grey's quality is outstanding. I love that we can get things like this for less because Camden-Grey doesn't have fancy packaging. (Their packaging and shipping is VERY careful, though.)

Hands down the best
This is by far one of the best sandalwood essential oils I have smelled. Very high quality and a little goes very long way.
