NANGAI OIL – Healing, Soothing, Deeply Nourishing

We love our beautiful Nangai Oil! So we couldn’t wait to share this happy customer’s enthusiastic review. When you buy The Summit’s Nangai Oil, you can be sure that it is a premium quality product, 100% pure, natural and undiluted. It is ethically sourced from farmers throughout Vanuatu, a unique island nation of natural gardeners.

“I only purchased a small 12ml to try. Well, it’s been amazing! It has dramatically helped my severe nerve pain in my legs from lipoedema (a disease which causes severe pain in the fat cells of affected areas) and from surgery I had in that area. It also really helps with itching and aches as well as being a luxurious moisturiser that my skin loves. I just ordered the largest size and its worth every penny”.

On Sandalwood Hydrosol – This is the most beautiful sandalwood hydrosol I have ever used. The aroma is vibrant, deep and rich. I am thrilled to have this beautiful hydrosol to spray on my face. I also added some to my bath…it was heaven!

On Sandalwood Powder – I burned your sandalwood powder yesterday on some bamboo charcoal and the aroma was magnificent. Such a beautiful incense. I am going to use it in a face mask tonight. Thanks for this high quality powder.

On Pure Sandalwood Oil – over the phone… After testing your sandalwood oil, I love the result. I love the aroma, the texture and the result of your pure sandalwood oil. I appreciate the ethical growing and sustainability of your Sandalwood Tree.

The Summit Ambassador, Isabella Manco, Business Developer

“Hi my name is Isabella,
I’m 27 years old living on the Central Coast of Australia and my life is all about maintaining a healthy balance. I always find the time to unwind with a walk or hike in the national coastline park or just about my local area, and an occasional yoga class. I spend a lot of time with the beautiful animals which I’m lucky enough to have in my life and that make it a more wonderful place. I also love to keep my body healthy by using pure & natural beauty products like the ones made by The Summit, which make me feel beautiful and glowing all year round no matter the season. A healthy balance between work and pleasure has been the key to my happiness and also, opening up my mind to new experiences because you never know unless you try!”




The origins of Summit Vanuatu stem from the largest single resource of sandalwood grown in the South Pacific and the second largest plantation in the world.

Only natural ingredients sourced from Vanuatu’s pristine islands are used to create our unique range of sandalwood based, tamanu, lime and nangai oil skin care products.

Our objective is to support village communities ethically at a grass-roots level and to empower smallholder farmers, with an emphasis aimed toward sustainability and gender equality.

We also care for the incredibly beautiful environment with which we are surrounded here in Vanuatu and make every effort to cut out waste. Our unique packaging for example is all handcrafted by our Summit Team using clean recycled cardboard and hand made rosettes.


At The Summit we distil essential oils and mix them with other natural and organically grown ingredients sourced from the islands of Vanuatu to make creams, balms, soaps, and sandalwood hydrosol based health & body products. We make all of our products at The Distillery on site, by hand, and our production processes are all observable by our visitors.




Our Summit Essential Oils Distillery is located close to town in Port Vila at the Tanna Coffee Roastery complex on Mele Road, just before the golf course. Here at our unique artisan facility we welcome visitors in the viewing area to observe operations, from the fascinating distilling process through to the production of our 100% natural health and skin care products. The Summit Skin Care Shop is also at this location and offers a full range of essential oils, face, body & health products, soaps & candles. The knowledgeable Summit Team will assist in choosing the product right for you.
