The East Indian Sandalwood essential oil is extracted via CO2 extraction from the wood of the tree.

CO2 extraction is referred to as Hypercritical carbon dioxide extraction. The process is relatively new in extracting the essence of a plant. The process consists of applying a certain amount of CO2 (carbon dioxide) pressure which condenses into liquid.

The liquid carbon dioxide acts as a solvent on the natural plant material. The essential oil content then dissolves into the liquid CO2. Afterwards, the CO2 is brought back to natural pressurization, the CO2 evaporates back into its gaseous state and what is left is the pure and natural liquid extract of the plant.
