Sandalwood has been treasured as an incense ingredient for at least 4000 years. The fragrance of sandalwood creates a relaxing and harmonizing atmosphere of calm. Sandalwood is utilized often for meditation, and is the base for many types of incense.
India has used sandalwood heavily in rituals and religious ceremonies, most commonly in prayer as it is considered sacred.
We are very pleased to offer sandalwood chips & powder from Western Australia (Santalum spictatum) as well as superior Mysore Sandalwood quality from Indonesia and premium Sandalwood from Taiwan.
Traditional Santalum album from India is nearly impossible to obtain due to overharvesting in the past several decades, as well as plantation theft. Please explore our other beautifully aromatic options!
