Sandalwood Vanilla Scented Shea Butter Recipe

Sandalwood and Vanilla Beans

Sandalwood and Vanilla Beans

Sandalwood is a class of woods from trees in the genus Santalum. The woods are heavy, yellow, and fine-grained, and, unlike many other aromatic woods, they retain their fragrance for decades.
Sandalwood oil is extracted from the woods for use. Sandalwood is the second-most expensive wood in the world, after African blackwood.

Both the wood and the oil produce a distinctive fragrance that has been highly valued for centuries.

Consequently, species of these slow-growing trees have suffered overharvesting in past centuries.
