Common Name: Yasi Sandalwood
Genus & Species Names:
Santalum yasi
Plant Family: Santalaceae
Country of Origin:
Fiji
Plant Description: A small to medium sized evergreen tree, up to 20 ft. high and trunk 6-13 inches (12 - 22cm) in diameter, with rough fibrous bark, opposite, leathery leaves and dark brown heartwood.

Farming Method:

  • Cultivated on the island of FIJI.
  • Like most species of the genus Santalum, Santalum yasi is a root parasite, tapping the roots of other species for water and inorganic nutrients.
  • The trees must be 30 years old before oil production becomes viable and even then the yield is not more than 5%.

Essential Oil Extraction Method:

  • 100% Pure Therapeutic Grade CHOZEN Essential Oil by steam distillation of the heartwood, bark and root ball of Santalum yasi.
