Sandalwood – Santalum album

Along with jasmine, coriander, black pepper, patchouli, vetiver, ylang ylang, cardamom, cedarwood atlas, cinnamon leaf, ginger, neroli, and rose otto, sandalwood is considered an aphrodisiac.

Due to the high price of sandalwood, while still 100% pure, ours is pre-blended in jojoba. Which also means, it is not suitable for use with any type of diffuser (the jojoba will clog the mechanism or the jewelry).

If you would like to purchase undiluted, 100% pure sandalwood, please contact us for price & order information – ljturtlearomatherapy at

We also carry Sandalwood hydrosol – which is a very affordable way to integrate this plant into your everyday.  Our AfterShave is blended with sandalwood hydrosol.

Sandalwood essential oil and hydrosol is available for purchase at the Guelph Farmers’ Market, Saturdays, 7 am – noon.

Please consult an essential oil book or other professional reference source for suggested uses & dilution ratios.
