Sandalwood has been used for 1000s of years for a variety of uses. But its strength lies in its effect on the Skin and Emotional System. Topical use smoothes scars and blemishes. When diffused aromatically, its soft, sweet, earthy aroma creates harmony between and balances emotions creating an enhanced mood.
The French have used Sandalwood to treat impotence, bronchitis, and hemorrhoids. The Egyptians used it for embalming or as incense while meditating to enhance the experience. This smooth oil does not require dilution when applied topically to areas of concern or reflex points. It can also be taken internally in a capsule, 1 drop oil in 1 tsp honey or add to 4 oz of beverage.
This oil is steam distilled from the wood of the plant and acts to balance or modify the properties of other oils. It is recommended to blend with Lemon, Cypress, Ylang Ylang, Myrrh, or Frankincense.
