Review

  • Indian or Agmarked Sandalwood is the most prominent and sought after of the wood oils. The Agmark seal is given by the Indian Government as proof of quality and that the oil conforms to approved standards. However, even today almost half of the oil is still exported without the necessary documentation and qualities leave a lot to be desired. The Indian government has tried to introduce tougher legislation in order to reduce the volume of illegal exports and illegal felling of young trees. New Caledonian oil is also in vogue at present, but is still more expensive due to the excessive freight and handling charges. Many rumours have been circulating over the years about shortages, availability, lack of replanting, logging young trees etc. No matter whom you speak to, there will always be a different twist on the previous information you received. One thing is certain however, the illegal export of Indian Sandalwood Oil will continue, as will the illegal logging of immature Sandalwood trees. It may take a number of years, but the Indian oil will gradually become scarce, as the so-called replanting projects are not properly coordinated and organised. The Sandalwood tree is basically a parasite, depending on other trees for survival. The roots of the developing Sandalwood tree tap into the roots of surrounding trees for nutrients it cannot readily absorb itself. In most cases it doesn’t destroy the host tree, but inhibits its potential growth. Therefore if you are told of Sandalwood ‘plantations’ you are being misled, as the trees will not survive on their own and are developed in the presence of other trees.
