Mysore Sandalwood - Essential Oil
From our Connoisseur Collection!
Mysore Sandalwood Essential Oil by Attar Bazaar is a sumptuously rich 100% all natural essential oil. It is deep, dark, herbal, and unimaginably woody and smoky. It is also incredibly smooth and well rounded. It's as if you were inside the wood itself. Mysore Sandalwood is the finest steam distilled sandalwood oil available on the earth! The one which sets the standard for sandal oils. This version is 100% Pure Santalum Album from Indonesia.
As with all essential oils, never use them undiluted. Do not take internally. Keep away from children. If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body.
The Indian Sandalwood Situation Today
The Indian sandalwood tree has become endangered over the past 50 years and in an attempt to curb its possible extinction the Indian government has limited the exportation of sandalwood. I have heard from several suppliers that it is now illegal to export pure sandalwood oil. The Indian suppliers that are willing to send sandalwood oil out of the country have it from previous stock. It is our practice to send a sample of any sandalwood oil we import to a testing lab here in the U.S. We have now obtained a beautiful santalum album sandalwood oil which we have imported from Indonesia. In my opinion, it is breathtaking! In case you are wondering, we continue to call this oil "Mysore Sandalwood" because that is now its most recognizable common name for the steam distilled oil officially known as "Santalum Album".
