Protecting vulnerable species

We source our Sandalwood (Santalum album) from Australia. Here, the luxurious essential oil is extracted from trees grown in sustainably managed plantations. Due to its high value and demand, in the past Sandalwood has been exploited to the verge of extinction. After years of searching for a sustainable source, we’re delighted to have secured a sustainable supply of Sandalwood (Santalum album).

Shockingly expensive & not honest about the contents.

Like other reviewers I was utterly stunned when I opened my bottle of Sandalwood last night. I bought this last year and have kept it in the box in a press away from light. I bought it as I had had a number of pneumonia & heard that it was good for this. I kept it because I didn't quite need it at the time. So when I opened it and it was less than 1/3 full I thought perhaps it had evaporated. I had no idea that there were 2.5ml in the 10ml bottle because it is not made clear anywhere on the bottle or the outside carton- perhaps by way of a sticker - that this is the case. I find it absolutely outrageous that this is the case. I ordered via my aromatherapist so needless to say I did not see the website. I paid about €60 for the 2.5ml & to say that I feel ripped off is an understatement. Other equally reputable companies are not charging anything like this price. AND when the bottles get down to 2.5ml it's almost impossible to get the oil out so I had no chance of getting it out without removing the seal. It is just very underhanded & dishonest to sell this way. Had the carton stated it was 2.5ml in a 10ml bottle I would have returned it for a refund. I am appalled and have just placed my next orders with Do Terra & Tisserand...Response from NYR on 22.01.20 'We understand you’ve already been in touch with our Customer Care team.

Advice to buyers

The complain about lack of scent. Sometimes we can not sense a scent but the others do- it had happened to me few times with various oils/perfumes so I am aware of it. Instead of panicking, it is worth asking friends and other people around how do they like the smell. I was never able to smell much of one particular perfume but I liked the scent so I would be piling it up many times a day as I would only sense it for few minutes if I spray A LOT. But everyone else were able to smell it and had to really suffer my overpowering perfume. So it may be possibility. And also about the price. I have that book which says what oil is more and what one is less costly. It really helps me to realize what is what. NYR products are not diluted and of high quality and that may affect the price.

Shocked at excessive price for only 2.5ml

My husband was sold this in the Exeter Shop - he wasn't even told it was only 2.5mls or he wouldn't have bought it!!!! The price is excessive even compare to other very high quality suppliers, over twice the price. Unfortunately my husband who's carer for 5 disabled family members and was on a very short carer break and is under a grest deal of stress, so he just didn't think to question as it looked like a 10ml bottle of oil. And from Australia, not Indiia!!! Its even more expensive than Rose Otto. I was a professional Aromatherapist for many years so I am aware of the price if oils but this is shocking! But even more so is the lack of verbal information, not what I would expect from Neal's Yard...Response from NYR on 24.01.19 'We are sorry to hear of your experience and it would be most helpful if you could contact our Customer Care team who will discuss this with you on advice@nealsyardremedies.com or call on 01747834634.'

Stand alone quality

Beautiful scent. A luxury buy but the quality is clear. The sandalwood is super sweet and vanillary with rich woody notes. I'm in love with this and using it feels like you're spending gold in a lovely way. I bought this as gift for my mum and she loves it. It barely needs blending with any other oils because of its stand alone gloriousness. The fact that it's sustainably sourced is a mega added bonus and I challenge anyone to find a better quality sandalwood out there.

Where's the smell??

Really, really disappointed with this oil. I'm training to be an aromatherapist and this was a considered purchase for me. I knew there was only a small amount of oil in the bottle, so no surprise there. 'My disappointment comes from not being able to smell anything! Seriously... no smell at all. I bought this off a friend who has started selling NYR so didn't want to moan to her, but quite frankly, it's rubbish. Any suggestions, Neals Yard?? Could I have got a dodgy bottle?...Response from NYR on 07.03.18 'Thank you for your review, and I’m sorry to hear that you are disappointed with the scent. Our Sandalwood has a rich and woody aroma. Please do contact your NYR Consultant and they can happily arrange a return for you.'
