Sandalwood Essential Oil

Santalum album | Essential Oil
Availability: In Stock

Native to India, Sandalwood has been highly valued since ancient times— and rightly so. Used to purify spaces in religious ceremonies and enhance meditation, Sandalwood is highly beneficial in many spiritual, emotional, and physical applications, making it an incredibly popular addition to any essential oil lover’s collection.

Sandalwood’s aromatherapeutic applications are vast, and can be used in your home or office to help balance emotions, ground the mind, and lessen mental tensions with its superior calming effects. Sandalwood is a great tool for meditation, and can be used to help lift the mood, dispel inferior thoughts, and reduce irritability for a more focused and effective meditative session. Sandalwood is also a great sleep companion, and can be diffused 30 minutes before bedtime to quiet the mind and promote a deeper, more peaceful sleep.

Sandalwood is incredibly beneficial in skin care, as it helps to regulate the production of sebum, an oily/waxy substance produced in the pores to hydrate the skin and hair. Give your skin the boost it deserves by adding Sandalwood to your skin care routine for a brighter, healthier, and more even complexion. Use topically with a moisturizer or dilute with a carrier oil to use as an aftershave to help nourish and calm the skin. 

As a base fragrance note, Sandalwood’s medium-strength aroma offers an enticing woody, earthy, and slightly balsamic scent that is highly complementary to other oil blends. 

Sandalwood Essential Oil is part of the Rocky Mountain Oils® Relief, Mood, Skin Care, and Sleep collections.

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.
