Legend: Traditionally Buddhist monks have inhaled Sandalwood oil to clear their minds before meditation. Australian Aborigines have made a cough medicine from soaking or boiling the inner bark in water. Sandalwood was a major export of Australia in the mid 1800’s, now there are ethically grown plantations. It takes 30 years before a tree can be harvested and due to global warming these trees throughout the world are becoming endangered.

Directions: Suspended in a base of pure Jojoba oil, this Sandalwood Australian pure essential oil blend can be applied neat to the skin or used in massage. For other ways to use essential oils please visit our Methods of use section. Please note: that Essential Oils blended with Jojoba do not burn as well in candle vaporisers (unless they are very well heated). The water in the candle vaporiser needs to be quite hot and the newer open style burners just don’t heat the water/oil up enough, so if you are purchasing a new vaporiser make sure you get an enclosed one.
We recommend electric diffuser that uses ultrasonic waves to diffuse the water with essential oils into tiny molecules, producing an elegant mist, releasing the essential oils in their 100% purest form and enhancing the effect of aromatherapy.
