    Botanical Name: Santalum Austro-Caledonicum

    Plant Part: Wood

    Country of Origin: New Caledonia

    Method of Extraction: Steam Distillation

    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.

    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 oil is one of my favorites to make therapeutic blends with. It is a great fixative and adds a wood and musk scent that you will find to be very calming to the spirit. Usually you find sandalwood at high prices and inferior grades. Not the case here. A must have! Thank you CG!!

    This is by far the BEST oil that my nose has ever had the pleasure of being introduced to! I actually travel with this inside of my purse. When I get a little overwhelmed at work, I take a quick whiff of this and everything is good with the world again. I use it on my skin straight out of the bottle, and I dilute it with water in a spray bottle for a moisturizing hair spritz. This is my signature scent, and I never see myself parting with it. Worth the cash!
    Truly 1 of the best!!

    I like this particular Sandalwood oil. It is genuine and is good for therapeutic use, unlike the Australian type. Australian Sandalwood is a related species and the oil is of inferior quality. This new Caledonia oil is genuine, since their plantations are well-controlled. I am thrilled that you now have this great oil.

    I wasn't sure I wanted to introduce sandalwood into my line or my life. It's pricey and I'm aware of its scarcity. I've found, to my delight, I need so little of Camden-Grey's Caledonia sandalwood to get that wonderfully unique effect. My most recent indulgence is a dab of rose and sandalwood on my wrists. Again, so little is necessary and the scent just envelops me, does not fade. The same combo with ylang ylang in rose water on my hair--don't even get me started!

    Thanks for browsing thru this section which contains answers to many questions that are often asked of us. Here we explain where to locate CofA and SDS for a product, how we dispense and package our products, how products should be stored, basic terminology and the wait time for bulk products to ship from our warehouse. FYI: We're closed on Fridays.

    Certificate of Analysis (CofA) and Safety Data Sheet (SDS). We publish on our website those documents for most of our products, some products don't provide either because the product doesn't require it. In this same section where you're at now, look to the tab to the left titled Documents, click on it and that's where you'll find either document for the product you seek. If you do not find the document you require, please email us at so we can research further.

    BULK ITEMS: When a customer adds a bulk item to the cart, the customer’s immediately shown on the screen how many number of days should be allowed for the bulk product to arrive at our warehouse. If the bulk item happens to be in stock, we’ll ship sooner than the customer would expect. As we emerge from Covid, logistics operations are not yet back to normal, what used to arrive at our warehouse in 3 days now takes much longer. Should a vendor inform us the ordered product will take longer than what’s mentioned on our website we’ll email the customer with the latest information.


    EO = essential oil

    FO = fragrance oil



    Essential oils: in 1/32 oz. to 1/4 oz...amber glass vials with orifice reducers. ½ oz. to 2 amber glass bottles with white caps and Eurodroppers...3 to 4 oz. in amber glass bottles with black caps and without orifice reducers...7 oz. in aluminum bottles...15 oz. in amber glass bottles with black caps...10 & 25 lbs. in HDPE plastic containers with wide mouths although, occasionally, 25 lbs. may be dispensed in factory-issued metal containers with pouring spouts.

    28 lbs. of carrier oils and other liquids are dispensed in individual HDPE plastic gallon containers with handles, each holds the purchased net weight of liquid.

    30+ lbs. of carrier oils, other liquids, soft butters, Castile gel and other products are dispensed in plastic HDPE pails w/metal handles & pouring spouts in the lid; those products may remain inside the pails indefinitely when properly stored. After Covid, we reserve the right to use any packaging/dispensing container available to us and not mentioned above because it continues to be difficult many times to restock the same packaging container or material used in the past.

    NOTE: An EO may safely remain inside an aluminum container for up to 3 months, but if storing longer than 3 months the oil should be transferred to amber glass. Fragrances and carrier oils up to 8 lbs. may remain inside HDPE plastic bottles indefinitely. If the customer at any time feels more comfortable transferring a product to glass this should be done. ALL PRODUCTS ARE DISPENSED BY WEIGHT, THUS, SOME CONTAINERS MAY BE FILLED HIGHER THAN OTHERS DEPENDING ON THE WEIGHT AND VISCOSITY OF EACH PRODUCT.

    Raw materials/ingredients are dispensed by weight. Many customers ask how many ounces in a pound, there are 16 ounces in one pound. These are not fluid ounces, they are ounces by weight.

    HOW TO STORE: EOs, FOs and BUTTERS should be stored in tightly-sealed containers away from direct light and heat. Some EOs could be highly flammable, keep away from open flames. Keep all liquids and powders you purchase from Camden-Grey tightly capped and away from the reach of children, the elderly or infirm and pets. Refrigerating butters could adversely affect the consistency of the butter, please join our Forum if you need to learn how to handle, work with and store products.
