Our story

The world's trusted guardian of the wellbeing super ingredient, Sandalwood Album.

A new beginning

In 1997, we located one of the precious and rare sources of Santalum Album in Mysore, India, the birthplace of the most fragrant and medicinal trees.

In the ideal growing conditions of Australia’s pristine tropical north, we planted these seeds and began our long journey of learning as the trusted guardian of Sandalwood Album.

An investment in time

From the first planting in 1999, we have dedicated nearly 20 years to mastering the art of hosting and cultivation of Sandalwood Album. Each sandalwood tree requires at least four host trees and continuous care over a 15-year lifespan to ensure a healthy and potent amount of the rich, fragrant, oil-bearing heartwood.

By harvesting and replanting each year, we have created the world's first and only sustainable supply of this endangered species, with 5.4 million Sandalwood Album trees covering 12,182 hectares.

A shared passion

Each day, our team of 500 inventive and optimistic people share in our mission to give the gift of Sandalwood Album to the world. Together, we work to give our communities and partners a sustainable, traceable supply and to unlock the future potential of our wellbeing super ingredient through co-creation.
