SANDALWOOD has grown in India for at least 2,500 years and the tree is one of the oldest known sources of perfume. It is mentioned in many ancient Indian texts.
Sandalwood trees flourish from sea level up to 1,800 metres, and trees growing on stony or gravel soils are the ones with the best fragrance. Also, the fragrance increases as trees grow older. One Village sandalwood comes from Tamilnadu, where the government has encouraged new sandalwood plantations. All of the sandalwood comes from government managed sources. Many people depend on sandalwood for their livelihoods. Artificial sandalwood fragrance (from chemicals) is often used in products by commercial companies – but the qualities of artificial sandalwood are not the same as authentic sandalwood used in One Village soap and incense.
