Sandalwood is a name given to a class of fragrant woods that, unlike other aromatic woods, can retain their fragrance for decades. Both the wood and oil have been highly valued for centuries and Sandalwood has a documented history of many applications. It was traditionally used as an incense in religious ceremonies and for enhancing meditation, and the Egyptians used sandalwood for embalming. Sandalwood is very beneficial to the skin; it can help reduce the appearance of skin imperfections and it promotes a healthy, smooth looking complexion. Sandalwood has a sweet, woody, uplifting aroma and is frequently used in meditation for its grounding effects.

Uses

  • For an at-home spa experience, fill a large bowl with steaming water, then apply 1-2 drops of Sandalwood to your face and cover head with a towel. Place your face above the steaming water. Your skin will feel nourished and rejuvenated.
  • Apply 1-2 drops to wet hair to help restore moisture and give hair a silky shine.
  • Inhale Sandalwood directly from palms or diffuse to lessen tension and balance emotions.
