This is one of the most precious forestlands 


 sandalwood log that makes it so precious 


 to get to it these men lifelessly has


 down the lighter external subcaste of sapwood 


 until they are left with this the dark 


 the inner core that makes a kilogram of 


 Indian sandalwood cost 200 moment 


 this is where sandalwood's unique 


 the scent comes from and when it's 


 distilled it's used in all kinds of 


 products from bath detergents to luxury brand 


 so what makes sandalwood's aroma so 


 and is that why the wood is so precious 


 native to south India centalum reader or 


 Indian sandalwood was used for hundreds 


 of times before getting a go-to scent 


 it's also been used for wood busts 


 and drug and it's indeed considered a 


 a sacred tree in several persuasions 


 formerly distilled sandalwood's sweet woodsy 


 aroma retains its scent for decades 


 this we take independently and it is 


 after gathering the forestry department 


 sells sandalwood at the transaction to manufactories 


 this is a judge local class of 


 we have entered from Narayan in Kerala 


 concave heartwood logs are classified as 


 jejpokal is one of the 18 classes of Indian 


 manufactories can buy pure heartwood 


 like judge local or raw sandalwood logs 


 but if they buy the raw wood they'll 


 need to break down each log themselves 


 although a machine helps resolve 


 sandalwood into further manageable pieces 


 stripping the logs down to their 


 heartwood core requires the trouble of 


 in a physically demanding process these 


 men hash each log to remove the sapwood 


 a thenon-fragrant portion of sandalwood 


 heartwood the external portion is called 


 sapwood and the surface portion is 


 pure heartwood is the most precious 


 in some trees, pure heartwood is easier 


 to prize because it forms in one 


 in other trees the heartwood mixes 


 together with sapwood which impacts the 


 this brown portion is altered and this 


 and sapwood that is why it's called 


 mixed wood so it's a little bit 


 after workers have gathered all they 


 can a machine breaks down the strips of 


 workers do a sift through these chips 


 to snare any leftover pieces of usable 


 also, a separate machine turns those 


 the process is long and it starts with 


 fitting brume into distillation stills 


 after the canvas is uprooted all that's 


 leftism are these giant mounds of greasepaint 


 but indeed with the utmost of the canvas gone some 


 rather than going to waste it's used to 


 make incense sticks and dupe a common 


 form of incense in India used during 


 during the final stages workers separate 


 the canvas from water and purify it until 


 they're left with a completely clean tank 


 it takes Mahadeva's platoon about a week to 


 distill one metric ton of canvas 


 tanks of the purified canvas are transferred to a 


 then experimenters test each batch for 


 they smell samples of the canvas to confirm 


 the aroma is harmonious across batches 


 sandalwood's unique and long-lasting 


 the scent makes it compatible with a wide 


 which is why it's an ideal base for 


 so sun cargo canvas is a woody emulsion it 

 is a base emulsion it longers around 


 further, than 24 hours it isn't like that 


 after the canvas is tested it heads to 


 another plant where it'll be used to 


 make cleaner for Karnataka cleaner and 


 okay this is the final finished canvas is 


 the color of the canvas that was finished 


 product incense what we're using for 


 measures and also scent kids is one 


 of the biggest directors of sandalwood 


 although its primary focus is cleaner the 


 the company sells bottles of just sandalwood 


 one 10 gram bottle of sandalwood canvas 


 costs 5 500 rupees or about 74 bones 


 it is veritably precious for common people 


 I and you can not go to pay a 3000 


 rupees for a 5 gram of beach line 


 there used to be an increase in the price 


 the increase compared to former prices 


 so when the beach would price increases 


 surely canvas prices will also be 


 In 2017 a kilogram of Indian sandalwood 


 and demand is not decelerating down with the 


 request anticipated reaching over 165 


 out of roughly 10 sandalwood species 


 Indian sandalwood and Australian 


 sandalwood has the largest marketable 


 value the difference is the Indian 


 species has advanced situations of nascence and 


 sandalwood responsible for its lasting 


 scent and believed health benefits 


 India used to dominate the request for 


 sandalwood canvas and canvas- grounded products 


 but in recent times Australia which 


 grows both the Indian and Australian 


 the significant ground in the request 


 although this might look like a lot of 


 sandalwood India is actually facing a 


 in fact, the force is so limited that 


 this sandalwood distillery only operated 


 for about four months in 2021 


 and over until 2002, it was illegal for 


 private farmers to plant sandalwood 


 trees in the southern countries of 


 Karnataka Tamil Nadu and Kerala 


 government-sanctioned replanting 


 alongside the over-harvesting India's 


 and since 2018 the species has been 


 considered vulnerable one position above 


 another factor that limits force and 


 An increases in the price is essential to the 


 the way the tree grows aged trees tend to 


 farmers will generally stay around 20 


 this staying period does not only limit 


 the volume of sandalwood it also puts 


 crop it needs veritably tolerance to grow and 


 you need to cover it till its maturity 


 the moment every tree has to be registered 


 with the government and can not be 


 gathered or transported without 


 but indeed these strict regulations aren't 


 according to Hinduism moment roughly 2 


 000 tons of smuggled sandalwood passed 


 through the black request in 2018 


 to successfully grow the trees for 


 decades growers must pay the cost to 


 then in the megacity of Mysore some trees 


 on top of this trouble harvesting these 


 when a planter has blessed a government 


 functionary must come in person to extract 


 none of the trees should be wasted 


 particularly heartwood in the box and 


 roots since it holds the loftiest canvas 


 in the end the tree's total canvas affair 

 so you may get around 60 grams of 


 sandalwood out of 1 kg of a root portion 


 you may get around 40 grams to 


 in branches about 30 grams to 40 grams 


 to replenish some of its trees the 


 Karnataka state government created the 


 grow further sandalwood program around 360 


 growers are enrolled with we grow more 


 sandal design and we are encouraging 


 growers to grow more and more 


 sandalwood and after minimum 14 times of 


 but growing trees comes with the cost of 


 guarding them for decades at a time 


 the commodity that probably will still discourage 


 growers there are also the warrants 


 farmers need from the government which 


 it's uncertain if programs like this can 


 return India to its old product 


 situations but at a minimum, the trouble might 


 help restore some of the country's lost
