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
