A bit of HISTORY on Mysore Sandalwood oil [santalum album]. This particular  sandalwood species that is grown in Southern India, has been on the verge of extinction and is classified as one of the endangered plant species in India. The price of this oil reflects it’s very limited availability.

The production of Mysore Sandalwood is closely regulated by the Indian government to ensure that the Sandalwood forests are managed responsibly  The government was no longer allowing the export of Sandalwood. At present, sandalwood can be sold only to three government agencies in the state and is not available to the open market.- See, Sandalwood Act of 1999 approved by an Act of Parliament in India

Australia and New Zealand and a handful of companies are offering other varieties such as sandalwood spicatum. There is a small amount of sandalwood santalum album available from Western Australia,  however, there is a marked difference in quality compared to Mysore Sandalwood, The quality of Sandalwood oil is assessed on the basis of the total Santalol content. Indian Sandalwood oil has 90% Santalol content, in respect of Australian Sandalwood oil is in the range of 38-39% only. The age of the tree also play vital role along with other Agro climatic condition. There is a good demand for Indian Sandalwood because of its unique fragrance quality, its use in medicines, cosmetics, beauty aids & paradigmatic shift of the consumers towards the natural products.”See, Working for accelerating sustainable development of sandalwood requirements aims at meeting the needs of society present and future. -Proceedings of the Art and Joy of Wood Conference October 2011, Bangalore, India.

Hit by wood shortage, sandal oil factory to down … – Times of India   “The land of sandalwood is losing its fragrance: a huge shortage in the supply of sandal has resulted in the temporary closure of the Mysore Sandalwood Oil factory. The factory, established in 1916, is currently producing only incense sticks… It is no surprise that Karnataka’s pride, sandalwood, has almost dried up. It is the result of a shortsighted government policy which discouraged the cultivation of sandalwood by private farmers, and strictly prohibited the cutting of sandalwood trees. That, and the open plunder of the wood by poachers and other vested interests has resulted in an acute shortage of the state’s rich produce. Instead, the government should now encourage cultivation of sandalwood, and also utilize this high-quality resource which it should count as a blessing. The land of sandalwood is losing its fragrance: a huge shortage in the supply of sandal has resulted in the temporary closure of the Mysore Sandalwood Oil factory. The factory, established in 1916, is currently producing only incense sticks..”
