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.
A coveted natural ingredient the world over, the Indian sandalwood (Santalum album) species has been a fixture on the ICUN Threatened species red list since 1998. Despite conservation efforts, the native population has continued to decline according to the most recent Global Tree Assessment, conducted by Botanic Gardens Conservations International (September 2021).
Sustainable sandalwood farms, like the farms we rely on for Heartwood's sandalwood, are the future of the industry. They will help ensure that future generations can enjoy the benefits of sandalwood just as the ancients did long before us.
