Sacred Sandalwood Essential Oil

This variety of sandalwood is native to India but is cultivated and steam distilled at our partner farm in Australia’s tropical northern outback. Sacred Sandalwood essential oil provides an uplifting, warm, woodsy, and sweet aroma, while offering a variety of skin benefits. Sandalwood is a recognizable base note in many perfumes and fragrances. Its distinctly warm and woodsy aroma is the perfect complement to pampering spa treatments, relaxation time, yoga, and meditation. It can also help you recapture the qualities of younger-looking skin and enhance your favorite skin and hair products.

To ensure the purest, most authentic oil possible, Young Living’s Sacred Sandalwood essential oil comes from the highly sought-after Santalum album tree species transplanted from its native home in India to our partner farm in Australia, which has a similar landscape and climate. From there, each step of the cultivation process is closely regulated and monitored according to our strict Seed to Seal® guidelines.

  1. Young Living has paid 6 million in advance for sandalwood oil to help financially-strapped supplier Quintis. Full story.

    One potential wrinkle: Young Living rejects any oil that doesn’t meet its high standards. The rejected suppliers then sell the inferior oil on the open market to companies with lower standards (basically, the rest of the industry…they either don’t have the necessary equipment and expertise to perform such detailed tests and/or that simply don’t care).

    Although the article doesn’t provide those details, I suspect this deal includes a clause in which, if the oil does not meet Young Living standards, Quintis will reimburse Young Living’s investment with funds from the proceeds of oil that will be sold to companies that don’t mind marketing inferior oils.

  2. More details on Young Living’s sandalwood supplier. We’re talking big biz. Are we early witnesses to the return of economies based on real commodities? Like in ancient times when kings traded spices and essential oils? The synthetic world in which we’ve grown complacent after a few generations may come crashing down quickly. Full story.

  3. Young Living inks deal to buy Indian sandalwood oil from an Australian company at $US4500 a kilogram plus fixed annual increases of 2.5 percent a year. First shipment of oil is expected in October 2016 with monthly supplies thereafter.

    Exciting news since sandalwood has become endangered in India due to tree poachers. YL had to discontinue it a few years ago due to short supply and replace it with Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood.

    Will YL be offering traditional sandalwood again in a couple of months? According to my calculations, the raw cost to YL is $22.50 per 5ml bottle. Of course, that doesn’t include transport, testing, bottling, general overhead costs and distributor commissions. Full story.
