Description and Uses:
Sandalwood is said to have been used for over 4,000 years as a perfume and temple incense. This oil has a rich, buttery, exotic aroma which is uplifting and relaxing and is beneficial for all types of skin. It is traditionally burnt as an aid to meditation and often used in religious ceremonies.
Sandalwood essential oil creates an exotic, sensual atmosphere with its reputation as an aphrodisiac. It's an excellent skincare oil, useful for dry and damaged hair and as a body fragrance. Traditional uses include antiseptic, emollient, soothing agent, astringent, and skin conditioner.
Sandalwood's Environmental Impact:
Because Sandalwood of Indian origin has become increasingly over-harvested and expensive (due to skyrocketing demand and scarce supply), we've chosen to carry this Australian Sandalwood in its place. We consider this a better choice environmentally and hope you'll give this oil a try as an alternative to the over-harvested and endangered Mysore Sandalwood. Although certainly milder and less sweet, it has a lovely, deep, exotic aroma and still maintains the qualities that make Sandalwood such a sought-after oil in aromatherapy and perfumery.
