Sandalwood Australian is the ethical alternative to the Indian Sandalwood Mysore which is now a protected species. If you find anybody selling Sandalwood Mysore question them very carefully about where they have sourced it from as the distribution of Sandalwood Mysore is very heavily regulated due to illegal logging and felling of the Santalum album tree which has threatened the survival of the species. Sandalwood Australian comes mainly from Western Australian from a well managed plantation roughly 3 times the size of France.
Dilute in a carrier oil before skin application. Keep away from children and out of eyes. Do not take internally or apply undiluted to the skin. For further advice on using essential oils to treat medical conditions, we recommend you seek advice from a professional.
