SANDALWOOD | Bioabsolute

  • $70.00

Pure Santalum austrocaledonicum bioabsolute.

Sandalwood bioabsolute comes from the wood of slow-growing hemiparasitic trees of the genus Santalum. Overharvesting and illegal logging have led to concerns about the long-term viability of the well-known Santalum album species, commonly known as Indian Sandalwood. We are happy to offer Santalum austrocaledonicum from New Caledonia as a sustainable alternative.

This absolute is made from byproduct matter from other extraction processes (hence the name bioabsolute, or by-absolute). The result is a unique and complex olfactory experience that does not compromise on quality, but does reduce the ecological impact of ingredient sourcing.

Sandalwood bioabsolute is a veritable treat, exuding the sticky sweet aromas of maple syrup and brown sugar, layered over a deep and warm woody base.

Presented in a 5ml or 15ml black glass bottle with a euro dropper top that may have to be removed depending on the viscosity of the item selected. Please note that essential oils and absolutes vary widely in thickness and consistency.

Essential oils, absolutes, and other pure plant extracts should not be applied to the skin without being properly diluted in a cosmetic carrier (such as jojoba oil, ethanol, epsom salts, etc.) Always patch-test when using an essential oil or absolute for the first time, and research whether or not the extract you are using is skin-safe, or that it is appropriate for its intended use. Do not ingest essential oils or apply them internally, and avoid contact with the eyes. Keep out of reach of children and pets, and consult a knowledgeable health practitioner before use when pregnant or breastfeeding. Store in a cool and dry area.
