A new to us, lush and sweet Sandalwood, sustainably plantation grown in the French islands of New Caledonia. For every tree that is harvested, the growers plant not onlly 6 new Sandalwood trees, but 18 new host trees. By selecting this oil we are contributing to, rather than destroying, Nature’s gifts to us.
Aromatically, the New Caledonian oil is perhaps a bit lighter and sweeter than my beloved Indian Santalum album. I was delighted to encounter it, and as I sit here inhaling from a scent strip we dipped 12 hours ago, I am thinking this might be my favorite of our current range of Sandalwood oils and CO2s.
Guilt free and relatively affordable, what more could a Sandalwood addict ask for?
Delicious sandalwood!!! Somehow softer and sweeter than the Album, with an almost floral hint, but still definitely sandalwood. Blend equal parts with neroli Mediterranean 10%. Instant nirvana for sandalwood and neroli lovers like me. An oil not to be missed.
