  Sandalwood Absolute (no ratings yet)
Santalum austrocaledonicum, concrete from New Caledonia, vacuum-distilled from absolute in France.


Learn about the qualities, uses, and benefits of the entire Collection of Sandalwood Essential Oils here.

This colorless absolute (vacuum distillation removes impurities and color) is less intense than the Sri Lankan or Indonesian Sandalwood. It is closer aromatically to our Tamil Nadu oils, but not their equal in aroma. Its comparative affordability and its total clarity gives it a place in any collection.

I don't use it for the multitude of healing reasons I keep true Santalum album on hand, but the next batch of Sandalwood soap we make will be much more affordable, due to the relatively low cost of this absolute.

SHELF LIFE: Approximately 5 to 8 years after you open the bottle.  Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life. (This is the official estimate.  Experience shows that with proper storage it could be much longer.)
