Missed one of these auctions the other day but thinking about buying a semi or full circle log from him. His last 9LB log went for 263 USD. From what I've seen, Hawaiian sandalwood is still pretty sought after, no? More so than Australian, less than Indian? I wouldn't be buying to juice, simply to use as a table to cut other woods on - maybe a little play station for my ouddery wares. But I read somewhere that a typical distillation of sandalwood gets a conservative 3% yield. Is that the ballpark for this kind of wood as well? That would be: 4032 grams x 3% = 120 Grams. At the price his last 9LB piece went for of $260, you're looking at $25 per tola of oil. That's pretty good right? I feel like I must be missing something here. If you look at Doterra (MLM/pyramid style EO company for soccer moms in the US), they sell their pure indian and hawaiian sandalwood oils for the exact same price. Is that just because people don't know better or some other reason? Either way - the logs are pretty beautiful so I'll probably buy one anyway, but if anyone has experience burning or juicing Hawaiian sandalwood, I'd love to hear your thoughts. It might just be nice to have for making incense cones and using for macerations. What is the profile of Hawaiian sandalwood - both wood and oil? Lighter/darker, floral, musky, ambery, buttery?
