e3’s Sandalwood Blend — 100% natural and affordable
The warm, sweet aroma of Sandalwood… so incredibly relaxing. And as a base note, it blends beautifully with other essential oils. No wonder it’s in high demand and expensive.
Our solution is e3’s Sandalwood Blend. It gives you the therapeutic qualities and wonderful, earthy aroma of Sandalwood at a more affordable price than pure Sandalwood essential oil from Mysore, India. And it’s 100% natural, without any synthetics like some “Sandalwood products” on the market.
You see the location where the Sandalwood tree grows impacts the quality and scent of the essential oil. That’s why we call this a Sandalwood blend — it’s made up from a blend of essential oil from Sandalwood trees grown in various parts of India and Australia. Not only is this a more economical choice, it’s a more sustainable one as well.
While this blend may not carry quite the same deep scent throw as Sandalwood Mysore, many find it to be a lovely, cost-effective alternative. See below for all the ways this blend can be used.

How You Can Use Sandalwood Blend
After Shower: After showering, while your skin is still wet, put 1-3 drops of essential oil blend in the palm of one of your hands and rub your hands together. Quickly and evenly spread the essential oil over your legs, arms, and torso. Avoid sensitive skin areas. For maximum skin hydration and to seal in moisture, apply cream, lotion, or body oil directly to damp skin.
Bath: Mix 4-8 drops of essential oil blend in 1 teaspoon of carrier oil, such as fractionated coconut oil. (You can also add the essential oil to 1/2 cup of whole milk or heavy cream.) Set aside. If you have muscle aches, add 1-2 cups Epsom or Dead sea salts. Fill the tub with warm water and immerse yourself. Add the essential oil mixture and swirl the water around you. Massage your skin and breathe in the aroma. Remain in the tub for 10-15 minutes.
Bath, Foot: Mix 1-3 drops of this blend of essential oils in 1/2 teaspoon of carrier oil, such as fractionated coconut oil. Set aside.
