As potent as it is precious with its rich history deeply rooted in science.

Declared a ‘royal tree’ in 1792, Indian Sandalwood’s exquisite energetic properties have enraptured humankind for over four thousand years. A sacred sensory experience revered the world over, this rare ‘wonder’ wood boasts a complex nutrient profile scientifically proven to relieve tension and revive skin, body + state-of-mind.

Quite literally worth its weight in gold, second to oud, Indian sandalwood is the world’s most valuable tree – as potent as it is precious with its rich history deeply rooted in science.

Brimming with botanical compounds santalol-alpha and santalol-beta, these natural actives are uniquely abundant in Indian Sandalwood and classed as serotonin agonists (a.k.a bona fide mood boosters) which work to alleviate stress, promote sleep, enhance mental clarity and induce bliss.

Antioxidative, antiviral, antibacterial, antiseptic and astringent, Sandalwood also serves as a skin + wellness savior that protects against aging factors and environmental threats.

A cult fragrance figure, Sandalwood is beautifully complex with a spicy yet sweet sensuality that is at once uplifting + grounding. This distinctive aroma is a slow-burn, with Sandalwood’s gradual evaporation rate making it the ultimate base note for long-lingering allure.

Insatiable desire for its serene ambience, sublime scent and therapeutic versatility has seen this elusive aromatic grow rarer still with native forests all but depleted. At Heartwood we pride ourselves on the quality, integrity and potency of our product.

Amid the pristine wilderness of Western Australia’s remote east Kimberley region, Indian Sandalwood is sustainably grown, harvested and distilled by Heartwood for Heartwood. From seedling to top-shelf, it is the purity of Heartwood’s provenance + process that makes our Sandalwood offering a natural ‘wonder’ of the wellness world.
