It can also be extracted from the sapwood, but it will be a significantly lower quality. Over 90% of the essential oil is sesquiterpenic alcohols. It’s a warm, rich, and aromatically ‘woody’ oil. One interesting feature of sandalwood oil is the fact that it takes roughly 50 years for the tree to be mature enough to be harvested which makes this oil very expensive.

I was stunned by the scent of the oil! Smells fantastic, if you inhale deeply from the bottle. Does not have too powerful a fragrance. Only thing keeping this from 5 stars is the amount needed to create a scent in a mixture. Other than that and the price, it's a 5-star product hands down!!

Men should not use this product in bathwater. It can bring about a soothing warmth that feels as though it's radiating from inside, but when a man I know tried this, he reported it felt as though the family jewels were in a bonfire. Truly please put a warning in the section of your ad here about this caution.

Last minute emergency in product needed for a very loyal client, I found BA from a Google search for several difficult to find oils and carriers. Could NOT be more impressed with quality I received. Not only that, the team at BA came to my rescue when I noticed one ingredient had not made it into the order. Since I needed NEXT DAY shipping, manager Corey called UPS to ensure I'd get the delivery the next morning and made the addition to the existing order, saving me another short term shipping fee (over 75.00 saved). Everything shipped is pharmaceutical or cosmetic quality and fulfils or exceeds descriptions. You've got my business!!

Pkg shipped during old snap. Oil froze, bottle intact. Scooped a thin crescent and rubbed it into my sandalwood mala for a sensory trip from Vermont o a sanal forest where the Buddha might have rested on his path.
