Legend has it that a long time ago, Sages from India visited the islands of Indonesia to share the timeless wisdom of the Vedas and came back with the sacred gift of the Sandalwood plant, which they have been cultivating ever since. According to certain botanists, Timor may be the true birth place of the original Sandalwood species. One thing that is certain is that even to this day, a lot of sandalwood oil distilled in India is made from wood imported from Timor, for India's sandalwood resources are getting very scarce. Our Timor sandalwood oil is a classic "steam" distilled oil, beautiful, light with a nice buttery note. Comparable in quality to our Kanak Sandalwood.
