The unguent offered by these ancient trees is a sacred, sensual, sublime, and serene. Varying from regular sandalwood, Santalum paniculatum has distinct volcanic notes that conjure images of island mountainscapes, lapping blue waves, and thousands of acres of thriving, swaying trees.

This opulent oil is a long-awaited offering of an inspiring Hawaiian Sandalwood reforestation project that is saving endangered Sandalwood trees from extinction; Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood is only harvested from trees that are naturally nearing the end of their life cycle, and twenty trees are planted for each tree harvested. In other areas, these trees are harvested frequently and in many cases, illegally. This illegal harvesting leads to over-cultivation, poor quality oils, and the near-extinction of these benevolent trees the world over. (Our Sandalwood from Vanuatu is ethically harvested and lovely; yet this Hawaiian Sandalwood is extra special). Our distiller has increased the population of Sandalwood trees to 50 times its original numbers in the last three years alone. Each tree that is harvested for oil is chosen because it is already at the end of its life cycle.

Extremely potent, just one drop will do! 

When it comes to choosing essential oils, there's so many brands to choose from. And yes, it can be extremely confusing which brand to trust as there are so many essential oil brands that label it as "one thing" when in fact it is not 100% pure, or a combination of the 100% pure essential oil combined with synthetic fragrance oils. I hear this time and time again with certain brands. Living Libations, on the other hand, are completely transparent with all of their essential oils, ensuring they are authentic and pure and distilled only from the named plant matter. Furthermore, many distributers and marketers use terms such as “Grade A,” “therapeutic grade,” and “aroma-therapeutic grade” to describe their oils. Yet, these are words without meaning. No organisation, association, or commission monitors the purity or quality of essential oils, and there is no universal essential oil grading system in place. Be aware. Each essential oil has specific components that make it distinctive and authentic, and there are published standards defining these profiles. For over 20 years Living Libations have nurtured personal relationships with artisan distillers and family farmers around the globe so that we may secure authentic oils and extracts that are purely and fairly produced.
