Interesting facts: Sandalwood is an evergreen, parasitic tree that burrows its roots into other trees. The sandalwood tree can reach up to 9 meters (30 feet) high, has leathery leaves and small pink and purple flowers. The essential oil is extracted from parts of a matured (40 - 80 years old) sandalwood tree using steam distillation. The documented use of sandalwood goes back 4000 years to India, Egypt, Greece and Rome. Sandalwood has been used for as long as 4000 years ago and was treasured by many civilizations. In Hindu, sandalwood is considered holy and indispensable in all social and religious rituals and ceremonies. It is offered to the gods and goddesses and used for decorating purposes at birthdays and weddings.
