Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood is rapidly becoming one of the most sought after Sandalwood Essential Oils. The Hawaiian variety is exceptionally sweet and rich in comparison to other Sandalwood varieties.
Hawaiian Sandalwood is grown and distilled on the Big Island of Hawaii. The Sandalwood forest is located on a family owned and operated 2,800 acre farm, which is currently part of the Hawaiian Sandalwood forest restoration.
Until recently, Hawaiian Sandalwood had been unavailable for many decades due to over harvesting of the trees. This eco-project will provide Hawaiian Sandalwood to our beautiful Big Island for many years to come.
Dating back to 1797, our Hawaiian Kings and Queens traded sandalwood worldwide. By 1811, King Kamehameha monopolized the Sandalwood trade, which enabled trade with the Western world. King Kamehameha used his Sandalwood trading powers to purchase the artillery required to unify the Hawaiian Islands.
After King Kamehameha’s death, his son and successor King Kamehameha II, fell into tremendous debt with Sandalwood traders. By 1826, American traders began demanding payment towards the large debts owed by the king and chiefs. In order to repay the debt, the first Hawaiian law was implemented, a Sandalwood tax. Every man and woman was required to harvest a determined amount of Sandalwood to be given to the king.
The astounding amounts of Sandalwood being harvested exhausted the forests causing the wood quality to degenerate. Since the forests were being ravaged, prices became higher and quality decreased. By 1830, the Hawaiian Sandalwood trade had collapsed leaving Hawaii stripped of its precious Sandalwood for almost 200 years.
