Love it
I love sandalwood, it is my favorite scent.
This oil is VERY thick (as indicated in the description). I had to make the hole in the cup a little bigger to allow drops to fall from the bottle.
It has a base note and a single drop is enough when I diffuse it and it goes a long way.

Can I add a few drops of the RMO Sandalwood oil to this Sandalwood Blend for a stronger scent? According to the reviews, the blend needs a higher ratio of pure sandalwood to be able to detect the scent.

Is this 100% pure sandalwood essential oil? I received mine today and it seems it has a bit of a medicine smell in it. I hope it is not a blended oil.

Are you still selling the Sandalwood 15mL bottle as the pictures seem to alternate between the 5mL and the 15mL bottles? When I pressed the 15mL "purple switch" it did not move off the 5mL to 15mL so I can only assume that the 15mL is not available despite the pictures. Please would you clarify this for me. Thank you. :)
Tania F on Jul 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Good question! Yes, we still carry Sandalwood in both a 5mL and a 15mL. We have updated the photo on our website.

Is it edible?
A shopper on Sep 19, 2018

Rocky Mountain Oils feels that essential oils are very potent and can be dangerous if not used correctly. All of our oils are 100% pure, natural, and authentic. They are of the quality to ingest. However, we cannot provide dosing suggestions or directions on how to ingest if you choose to do so. If you do choose to ingest the oils, we suggest consulting an Aromatherapist or trusted health professional for guidance.
