This product is 100% pure Sandalwood Album heartwood chips, direct from the botanical source Santalum album. Other names for Santalum Album include Indian Sandalwood and Chandan.

Chipped from the oil-bearing heartwood (the centre of the Sandalwood trunk), grown and nurtured in the north of Australia by Quintis. These trees were originally planted over 20 years ago and then every year since to provide the world’s largest source, with sustainable supply into the future.

This form is prepared for use in steam distillation to extract the oil. Previously reserved for sale in bulk quantities, this unique wood is now made available in smaller volumes to allow trial and use by all. Applications include ceremonial burning, incense, linen cupboard scenting amongst others.


Sandalwood Album is one of nature’s true wellbeing ingredients, healing both body and mind. It is a natural anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and anti-microbial protecting and nourishing the skin. Its luxurious, intoxicating scent promotes focus and alertness, which is why Buddhists use it during meditation.

Modern science and ancient rituals have converged to demonstrate the power of Sandalwood Album. And now, Quintis is sharing the benefits of this prized wood with the world. For further information, check the Specifications tab or visit for more information.
