Sandalwood Nut Oil Pure West Australian is processed from the nuts of the plantation WA Sandalwood trees – Santalum spicatum – after they have fallen. Once the nuts have been collected they are graded by size with the larger ones being kept for new plantings and the balance being ideal for the Sandalwood nut oil production. The kernels are finely chopped and the oil extracted by supercritical C02. This is the only method that can be used efficiently and effectively to extract this long chain molecule oil – cold pressing simply does not work to produce Sandalwood nut oil
