Extremely suitable to Aromatherapy inspired products, skin care and natural perfumery. It is recommended that this 50% dilution of Indian Sandalwood be further blended into lotions and other carrier oils.
Exquisite oils should not be wasted by diffusing in ultra-sonic water diffusers.
Many companies offer neat versions or 3% dilutions. At Prima Essence we feel that 25% dilutions are worth their weight in gold, making them more affordable than a pure or neat form and far more useful than typical 3% dilutions.
Sandalwood is one of the most expensive woods in the world. The oil is extracted via different methods, with steam distillation being the most common. During ancient times the traditional method was to soak the wood in water followed by boiling until the oil is released.
*Santalum album is a preferred oil for skin care products due to its higher levels of santalol. For science based evidence search in PubMed for santalol skin cancer.
