Finally found this sandalwood oil. So happy to get it. The fragrance is real but very mild. I remember the very strong fragrance of the oil available long back. I think the trees have been impacted by the environmental changes.
This is probably the softest and lightest (in the sense of weight, NOT low dilution quality) scent I've ever come across. "Gentle", "kind", and "clean" are the words that makes me come to mind about this Sandalwood. Amazing quality as expected.
This is hands down the finest sandalwood I've ever found! As are all the other oils I've used from Snow Lotus.
This is real Indian sandalwood oil, there's nothing else like it. I was shocked to be able to find it, been looking for it for some time. I use it to anoint the deities. Only the best for them! But it's also incredible for stopping headaches. Just a tiny amount on the temples does the trick.
I agree with the other reviewers - this is a beautiful Sandalwood. I have been seeking genuine Mysore Santalum album for years. This is a rich, hearty, deep, woodsy, pure Sandalwood. I use it every day - actually several times a day. I make a 10% blend with fractionated coconut oil and use it topically - usually a few drops on my hands, arms and face. I also sometimes apply a few drops of the blend on my face mask before I go out - it's calming and centering. I've already ordered several times and will no doubt order more. Btw, the service at Snow Lotus is great and the customer service reps really care - my orders usually take only about three days to get here. Quality company, quality oils. Thank you.
Beautiful Sandalwood, the best you can get outside of the 1990's and earlier (my time machine is broken). Thank you for this lovely oil. It's a wonderful enhancement to spiritual practices, meditation, and well being oil blends.
This is the real deal. Pure, healing sandalwood. It has a mild, golden scent. Perfect for deep, body-mind balancing and rejuvenation.
I am so grateful you guys are able to get this Sandalwood again. I know you use sustainable practices. It is reasonably priced and long lasting.
Smells amazing - really delicate and isn't cluttered by that weird musty smell some sandalwoods have
