Product Details

The Australian sandalwood industry has flourished for over a century. Early commercial plantations (Santalum spicatum) were established in the late 19th century in Western Australia, primarily to supply growing international demand for sandalwood oil in the perfume and cosmetics industries. With a 25 year maturation age, carefully planned plantations were established with the aim to fulfil the continued demand for sandalwood, while illegal logging dominated and depleted the industry overseas.

For tens of thousands of years, the Indigenous Australian use of sandalwood has been deeply intertwined within cultural practice. This aromatic tree has played a significant role, often serving as a sacred element in ceremonies, a source of traditional medicine, and a valuable resource for trade - its distinctive aroma believed to possess spiritual and healing properties.
