Marnta Sandalwood is an Aboriginal owned sandalwood harvesting, seeding and oil product company based in Leonora Western Australia.
Kado and Deeva Muir set the business up to create employment and opportunities for their children and other Aboriginal people in the northern Goldfields region.
The business is commited to sustainable harvesting and management of Sandalwood trees in the wild.
We only harvest dead sandalwood trees in the wild. We plant seeds to promote new growth and sustain the species.
We create Oils for luxury skincare and fragrance from Dead sandalwood trees and sandalwood nut oil harvested from sandalwood trees grown on WA plantations.
We are committed to a sustainable future for Aboriginal people, living and working on the land caring for a species of plant that has supported and sustained Aboriginal people for generations.
We work with others who share our ethics and vision for sustainability.
