Sandalwood

Overharvesting of sandalwood has caused a shortage for both Santalum spicatum and Santalum album, but this state is and has been fully controllable by addressing with intelligent procedure and conscientiousness. To address the shortage, in the 1990s sandalwood had also become a plantation crop meant for future harvest.

Today, some trees from plantations have reached maturity for harvest and plantation wood is slowly coming into the market which should ease the strain in the market in the years to come. The plantation sandalwood should reduce the high cost for Sandalwood Oil and aid with balancing supply and demand. Prices are still firm as of right now as this new oil is only starting to become available to manufacturers and demand is still very high.  You can find limited levels of sandalwood in MC2 developments, a once compromised agricultural product, however satisfyingly sensuous, deserves moderate consumption and management.

When nature meets science and science defines nature, we can find a harmony with which to move forward in natural product development.
