Sandalwood austrocaledonicum (Santalum austrocaledonicum), an evergreen parasitic tree which can grow to over 9 metres in height, is wild harvested from the South Pacific region. The roots and heartwood are steam distilled to produce a santalol-rich essential oil boasting a sweet, creamy and woody fragrance palette. It is becoming a great alternative to, if not better than, the prized Indian Sandalwood (Santalum album) which is becoming more and more scarce.
