Sandalwood is the name of a class of fragrant woods from trees in the genus Santalum.
The woods are heavy, yellow, and fine-grained, and unlike many other aromatic woods they retain their fragrance for decades.
As well as using the harvested and cut wood in-situ, essential oils are also extracted from the woods for use.
Both the wood and the oil produce a distinctive fragrance that has been highly valued for centuries. Consequently, the slow-growing trees have been over harvested in many areas.
