Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood Essential Oil 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.
Our Organic Hawaiian Sandalwood is grown and distilled on the Big Island of Hawaii. Our Hawaiian Sandalwood Essential Oil is sourced from a family owned and operated 2,800 acre farm, which is currently part of the Hawaiian Sandalwood forest restoration.
For every Sandalwood tree that is harvested, 25 more are planted in its place. This type of farming allows for a renewable source of this wondrous Hawaiian Sandalwood Essential Oil.
Until recently, Hawaiian Sandalwood had been unavailable for roughly 200 years due to over-harvesting of the trees. This eco-project will provide Hawaiian Sandalwood to our beautiful Big Island for many years to come.

Hawaiian Sandalwood has a unique history. It was on the verge of extinction until a few decades ago, and I for one am so glad for the reforestation project that brought it back.
Up until the late 1700's, sandalwood trees that grew on Hawaii Island were used by the natives for waterproofing and scenting clothing, making musical instruments and tools, and for treating dandruff, lice, skin conditions, and sexually transmitted diseases.
But once King Kamehameha conquered the islands in 1791, he realized the value of Hawaiian Sandalwood as a trade commodity.
Kamehameha taxed the people of Hawaii to the point where they had to extract sandalwood trees from the mountains in order to pay the king's tax.
Apparently, trading sandalwood trees allowed Kamehameha to pursue his obsession with acquiring guns, ships, and other traded goods.
By around 1825 the sandalwood population on Hawaii was so decimated that Hawaiian Sandalwood was nearly impossible to come by for around 200 years.
That was until recent decades, when a reforestation project brought back the production of Hawaiian Sandalwood in a sustainable way.
When I visited the Hawaiian Sandalwood forest farm some years back, I learned that only dead and dying sandalwood trees are harvested for their wood and essential oils.
It brings joy to my being to know that these wonderfully fragrant tress get to live out their lives on the slopes of Mauna Loa before they are transformed into useful objects, and the most delicious sandalwood oil I've ever experienced.
You can check out the reforestation forest farm's website Here, and even book a tour if you feel so inclined. This is the same source that supplies larger brands who sell Hawaiian Sandalwood essential oil for up to double our price.
I prefer Hawaiian Sandalwood on its own, or blended with a small amount of Magnolia. I have also added it to many of our blends, which I adore, and which I will show you below.
I usually apply the essential oil directly onto my skin. I don't sense the need to dilute this one as it doesn't feel astringent at all. The oil feels velvety, and its effects are subtle yet powerful in a way that you only need a little bit, but if you used it liberally, it would not be overpowering.
I like adding to the diffuser at bedtime , with lavender & Hinoki .
Hawaiian Sandalwood is the premier King of Sandalwoods, better than Indian Sandalwood, in my opinion, and it only makes sense to buy it from a Hawaiian company & a woman owned small business even better.
Haven’t used it yet but smells much better than the musky Australian sandalwood I’ve smelled in the past. Love that it’s made in Hawaii instead of knock of marketing to make a identical Hawaiian sandalwood. Thanks for providing true product.
Always quality oils at a fantastic price
It is very hard to get Sandalwood Hawaiian in a good price where I am from. Lucky I found MB, and this is awesome! It smells different from the one in India East. I get this sandalwood for some special purpose. Hopefully this EO would help me achieve what I want! Nice job MB!
