About Vanuatuan Sandalwood Essential Oil
Floracopeia's Sandalwood Oil is a high-quality, pure sandalwood oil from a sustainable source in Vanuatu. This Sandalwood Oil is deeply nourishing with a light, smooth and soft sandalwood oil fragrance. Sandalwood essential oil can be applied to the body generously throughout the day and is revered throughout the world for its calming and deeply satisfying fragrance. You can use this Floracopeia Sandalwood Oil with special satisfaction, knowing that it comes from a legitimate and sustainable source (a large percentage of the sandalwood oil on the market is adulterated or produced under unethical conditions).
It is a true pleasure to offer this Sandalwood oil from the Vanuatu archipelago of 82 pristine islands. This oil is thoughtfully produced by locals who believe in and cherish their stewardship of the sandalwood tree. Sandalwood oil, prized for its many healing qualities, must be trustingly sourced. Our eco-project that supplies us this oil is backed by 25 years of distillation experience, 18 of which have been devoted to artisanal sandalwood. The Vanuatu oil is produced by those who value and are committed to true quality and peace of life, infusing this sacred oil with these qualities.
Renowned for its calming, uplifting powers, the "divine oil" of sandalwood has long been a staple of sacred practice. A quintessential component to ritual and meditation, sandalwood calms a worried mind and creates a serene state of consciousness.
A most revered substance in perfumery, sandalwood oil is prized for its tranquil, nourishing and satisfying fragrance. The fragrance centers the heart, enhances concentration and opens higher centers of intuition. It enhances romantic moods with its sensual, opening and woody spicy-warm fragrance.
It is a befitting choice for enhancing the health and beauty of all skin types, and is particularly useful for alleviating irritated and red skin. Just place a drop or two into your moisturizer during your daily skincare regimen and apply as needed. It can be employed synergistically with lavender and helichrysum for skin that has been overexposed to the sun.
Sandalwood oil is among the very best oils to use on a daily basis as a healing perfume. It is considered highly sattvic, which means it promotes good health, tranquility, clarity and is very safe to use.
Vanuatuan Sandalwood Essential Oil Profile
The Vanuatu Sandalwood Eco-Project is creating positive local economy and knowledgeable plant stewardship of the treasured Santalum austrocalidonicum tree. Over the past 15 years, almost 2000 acres have been reforested with sandalwood trees. This oil is steam-distilled using wood fired stills that do not rely on outside fuel sources. Sandalwood saplings are planted on an ongoing basis, from hand-harvested seeds of native trees. With over 18 years distilling sandalwood, our distiller uses only low pressure and wet steam to produce a soft, gorgeous sandalwood oil.
