It's oil is similar to the threatened Santalum album of South India, though somewhat lighter, sweeter, and less complex. Renowned for its calming, uplifting powers, the "divine oil" of sandalwood has been a staple of sacred practice in India from prehistoric times to the present day. This smoothly rich varietal echoes many of the effects of the heirloom oil while providing an exquisite aromatic profile all its own.
Floracopeia was established to help preserve and promote the use of botanical medicines as solutions to the widespread ecological destruction taking place in the world, and the loss of medicinal plants on which traditional medical systems depend. We provide our customers with the highest quality essential oils and other botanical aromatic treasures through the promotion of ecological sustainability, organic agriculture, and agro-forestry projects.
Our products are acclaimed for their therapeutic-grade, high quality at affordable prices. We provide artisanal quality oils produced by small family-based distillers. We buy directly from farmers and distillers, thus supporting the local economies in which the plants are grown. We do not buy oils from the world-brokers. Floracopeia is founded with a strong medical orientation and is involved in a number of global eco-projects based in grass roots health care, spirituality, reforestation projects, and the preservation and restoration of ethno-botanical culture.
