Sandalwood essential oil has long been coveted for its skin-benefiting properties, seductive aroma, and use during spiritual ceremonies. It’s perhaps even more sought-after today than it was in ancient times. Because of this, the purity of Indian Sandalwood essential oil is often compromised due to an expanding black market. To ensure the purest, most authentic oil possible, Young Living’s Sacred Sandalwood essential oil comes from the pristine Santalum album species transplanted from its native home in India to our partner farm in Australia, which has a similar landscape and climate. The Australian plantation follows our strict Seed to Seal® guidelines and maintains award-winning sustainability measures to protect this highly sought-after oil.
