Sandalwood (Australian) - Santalum spicatum

Country of origin: Australia

Extraction method: steam distillation

Santalum spicatum, Australian sandalwood, is a tree native to semi-arid areas at the edge of Southwest Australia. It is traded as sandalwood, and its valuable oil has been used as an aromatic, a medicine, and a food source. S. spicatum is one of four high-value Santalum species occurring in Australia.

Steam-distilled Australian sandalwood essential oil has chemical components similar to Indian sandalwood. The most significant difference is that Indian sandalwood has much higher levels of santalol (25 to 30% versus 60 to 70%). The difference in the aroma of the two oils is most pronounced in the top note. Australian sandalwood has a more resinous, drier and less sweet top note than Indian sandalwood. The aroma of the two oils becomes more alike in the middle notes--and the all-important base notes are almost identical. In aromatherapy, Australian steam distilled sandalwood essential oil can be used the same as Indian sandalwood.
