Why Hawaii?

There are many species of the Sandalwood tree. Santalum paniculatum is the Sandalwood tree native to Hawaii, which is sustainably sourced from The Big Island (Hawaii).

How Does it Work?


“Iliahi” is the Hawaiian name for Sandalwood. Unfortunately, the Sandalwood trade has a sensitive place in Hawaii’s history. We are mindful of this history and fully committed to caring for and protecting the long-term survival of this tree.

Sandalwood is a hemiparasitic plant. This means that it connects to the roots of other plants for its water and nutrients. The highest concentration of essential oil is in the heartwood, or centre, of the tree. The ratio of heartwood to sapwood increases substantially as trees age, so older trees have the highest oil content. To ensure a sustainable harvesting programme, it is critical to allow trees to age. It is also important to continue actively planting to ensure excess replenishment of these Sandalwood forests.

Co-impact Sourcing

Environmental Stewardship on The Big Island

Our Hawaiian Sandalwood comes from the western coast of the island of Hawaii (The Big Island), specifically the Kealakekua Mountain Reserve. Over the past 150 years, cattle ranching and logging have hindered the regrowth of forests. Today, about 9,000 acres of the reserve’s total acreage are under conservation. A forest management plan has been approved and is overseen by the State of Hawaii. We estimate that by 2020 this will be the largest reforestation effort in all of Hawaii.

The conservation plan specifies that only dead or fallen sandalwood trees may be gathered for distillation at the outset of these efforts. This will allow existing trees to grow fully to maturity before they are harvested at the appropriate time and under sustainable tree management practices. We understand it will take decades to see sustainable progress and are dedicated to a plan of longevity.
