Western Australia Sandalwood
When compared with East Indian Sandalwood (S. album) both are extracted from the heartwood & root ball of the species and therefore, it is noticed that they are similar chemically, both contain alphy and beta santalol, which give Sandalwood its distinct scent.
It should be noted that WA Sandalwood oil contains higher levels of farnesol and alpha-bisabolol than East Indian Sandalwood. Both of these compounds have anitmicrobial and anit-inflammatory properties.
Arctander's book he described WA Sandalwood as 'soft, woody, extremely
tenacious and somewhat balsamic in its delicate sweetness.
This oil has been used as a topical medicine as well in the perfume industry.
When applied to the skin this oil is soothing, cooling & moisturizing, and primarily used for dry skin conditions caused by loss of moisture and skin inflammations. May also be beneficial to relieve eczema and psoriasis and for the treatment of oily skin and acne.
External use only.
Do not use undiluted on the skin.
Store away from children & pets.
