Australian Sandalwood is grown sustainably in Western Australia where it has been an important part of the economy since colonial times. It is evergreen, flowers throughout the year and can grow to be 10 metres tall. It has wide, thick leaves and grows well in special soil conditions. These trees are known as 'hemiparasitic', as they derive some of their nutrients from the root systems of host plants. The wood has a very distinctive smell and is primarily used in the perfume industry and to make incense.

Sandalwood is one of the ancient essential oils. Native to Asia, in particular India, where temples were built with Sandalwood to keep termites at bay. The ancient Egyptians used Sandalwood in embalming. Aboriginal Australians have long used the seed kernels, nuts and fruits as a food source. It is used for skin complaints, burns and coughs. It is said to promote peacefulness and is popular for meditation. Libido and fertility are also linked to Sandalwood therapies. In modern times, Sandalwood has been used by anger management groups to promote a calm atmosphere.
