Sandalwood essential oil is steam distilled from the fragrant woods of Santalum album or Indian sandalwood - the undisputed queen of all sandalwood varieties. One of the most valuable trees in the world, this oil has been used for centuries in a ritual context, particularly in embalming rituals and other religious ceremonies.
Prized for its enduring fragrance, Sandalwood is frequently used in perfumes, soaps, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals. Those who practise meditation also use it for its grounding and uplifting properties. If you've been feeling tensed or off-balanced lately, diffusion or direct inhalation of this oil may help boost your mood and balance your emotions!
Treat yourself to a luxurious facial treatment at home with Sandalwood's skin nourishing and rejuvenating properties. Carefully fill a large bowl with steaming hot water, add 2 - 3 drops of oil into the water ( or apply 1-2 drops on your face), lower your face directly above the water and drape a towel over your head. Bask in the steaming goodness for up to 10 minutes for dewy, healthy-looking skin!
For a more targetted approach, you may also dilute and apply topically to reduce the appearance of scars and other skin imperfections. Dull and dry hair? Try applying 1-2 drops of Sandalwood essential oil to wet hair to restore your mane's natural shine!
