Palo Santo and Sandalwood Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

Many of you have asked for more palo santo scents, and we think our Palo Santo and Sandalwood fragrance oil delivers a natural, luxe aroma ideal for candles and soaps. Our version is akin to a stick of palo santo before it’s lit–there are no smoke elements in this fragrance.

Instead, you’ll find Palo Santo and Sandalwood begins with fresh top notes of green moss, bergamot, and violet. Middle notes of incense and saffron build depth, while in the base, notes of arid, raw palo santo abound. Hints of sandalwood and patchouli gently ground this gorgeously complex scent.

This fragrance is infused with natural essential oils including guaiacwood, cedarwood, patchouli, clove leaf, elemi, bergamot, myrrh, lavandin, and spearmint.

Blends well with: Hibiscus Palm, Velvet Vanilla, White Sage and Lavender, Vanilla Eggnog

Alternative branding ideas: Palo Santo and Moss, Ritual, Mystical Wood, Energy Cleanse

Suggested colors: Natural, Tan, Grey

16 oz & 1 oz samples differ

Loved the 1 oz sample, it has that cool crisp almost woodsy minty top note of unlit palo santo wood. Was so obsessed with it that I bought 3 lbs of it to use for a special event. Unfortunately the 16 oz bottles I received don’t have the same top notes at all as the 1 oz samples do. Seems like I received a different blend in the one pound bottles— one that’s primarily sandalwood. :(

A different take

This scent is clean, sharp, slightly sweet, and slightly woody. There was a trend in 2017 to make "cannabis" fragrance oils and this has that similar bright / sharp note that those other cannabis FO's had, although it's much more rounded out and tolerable. I probably wouldn't label this a palo santo scent in my collection, but that doesn't mean I won't use if for other blends.

Palo Santo is so trendy right now, for whatever reason. Well, probably because it just sounds more upscale and mysterious than boring ol' cedarwood (a personal favorite tbh). Because it's so trendy and there's so many good options from suppliers, I'm looking forward to blending this with others to truly make my own, which is what I do for all of my scents (and you should, too ;] )

CS really nailed the sharp, green, good cannabis notes (not the skunky kind!), as well as amazing scent throw.

This is incredible

I have 4 years in the creation of candles and none resembled the Palo Santo. THIS IS HEAVEN!! Its aroma is too beautiful, it is identical to real Palo Santo, both alone and mixed it is wonderful.

CP Soap

I'm happy to report that this behaves well in CP soap with very mild acceleration! I made the mistake of putting the FO in with my oils before I added my lye water instead of whisking it in, therefore my batch accelerated. I was still able to work with it as I stick blended it until it reached a very light trace and the batter accelerated to a medium trace - so I was able to split it into two colors and swirl the soap. One of the colors I added charcoal and the other I left uncolored so I can see how this FO discolors and I'm happy to say it really doesn't discolor much!

Overall, I'm very happy with out it turned out. I cut the bars a few days ago and they still smell strong.

Never thought I'd get to experience a palo santo smell, but I'm glad I did. Smells like a nice cologne.

Just WOW!

I was in a hunt for a good palo santo scent, but non of the other FO's I found where close to the smell of palo santo I was expecting... When I saw that CS came with a palo santo scents I was excited, I knew they will get it right. CS nailed this palo santo scent, it's just perfect!!! I think this is going to be my favorite FO for a long long time.

Super strong HT and CT!

I am new to working with wax but I can tell this has a crazy good HT. I used it in some wax melts and the HT was so strong it scented my whole house. I had bought a 1 oz bottle to test. Came back for a 16 oz. The smell is amazing too, not like cologne but a very natural scent.

CS nailed it!

There are many companies that sell palo Santo fragrance oil and they all smell like men's cologne. I don't know how CS did it without using actual palo Santo but THIS IS IT.
