Not Santalum Album1
This is oil not elite and not good like fragrance or parfum. I've often been to India and Pakistan, and out of sandalwood they even make food. Sandal in bulk. And in Australia sandalwood more. NYR rushed with such a high price for this oil. This is an ordinary oil of the price category of ylang-ylang. This oil is contraindicated in people with kidney failure of any form. Also it is contraindicated for people with low blood pressure. Categorically. Moreover, the price of 50 pounds for 2.5 ml. this is beyond the bounds of common sense. And even more so, Santalum Album - only essential oil of East-Indian sandalwood that grows in the mountains in the south of India, as well as in the Malay Archipelago, is considered real. West Australian sandalwood is not Santalum Album. Even the West-Indian sandalwood, known as Amiris, is not a related plant for Santalum Album. Oil is extracted from it with absolutely different properties (which does not prevent it along with cedar, gurjun-balsam and copaib-balsam or completely replace it, or dilute the original oil).Report this review
Chromatographic analysis reveals absolutely different oils of Santalum Album from Australia/India. East-Indian Sandalwood: Cis alfa santalol 48%, alfa bisabolol 0 %, Epi beta santanol 6% Australian Sandalwood: Cis alfa santalol 18%, alfa bisabolol 7%, Epi beta santanol 3 % Also Trans alfa bergamottol 4 % (East-Indian Sandalwood) and 6 % (Australian Sandalwood) Trans farnesol contains only Australian Sandalwood (7%). These are completely different oils and only marketing and money craving cause people to deceive other people. a real therapeutic and dermatological effect has only East-Indian sandalwood, Australian Sandalwood just used in perfumery. Australian oil is inferior to the East India for medicinal purposes. I hope that NYR I hope that you will not ignore my messages to this oil. People should understand that when they buy Australian Sandalwood, they buy a completely different oil in terms of chemical composition. The expensiveness of Australian sandalwood is due to its use in the perfumes of Yves Saint Laurent and Dior. That's why this price. And the Australian sandalwood is called Santalum Spicatum. In all respects Melissa's oil is approaching the oil of the rose, people know little about it, we are here in Ukraine in the summer to prepare salad from it and grow Melissa everywhere in Ukraine. By its cosmetic and psycho-emotional actions on a person, it is incomparable.Report this review
It would help to tell us how many drops you get. I estimate 20 drops at the most. Put 3 in the Bamboo diffuser and most of the oil has gone. Wonderful aroma though and the diffuser looks good...**UPDATE FROM NYR** Further to our response on 28.11.17, after more conversations with our aromatherapists, we’d like to correct our original advice. As a general rule, there are about 20 drops per 1ml of essential oil, not 10, which means that there would be roughly 50 drops per 2.5ml. However, this does vary depending on the oil, and, because sandalwood is quite a viscous oil, the overall number of drops will be less.Report this review
