What It’s For

Sandalwood is found in many skincare products because it moisturizes and supports healthy skin. When used during meditation, prayer and yoga, it encourages focus and helps to center the body and mind.

Interestingly, sandalwood essential oil is useful for releasing the emotions of fear and dread. The gentle, slightly sweet and woody aroma of sandalwood is uplifting and calming to erratic thoughts and worries. When the mind is relaxed and open, it can encourage intuition as well as feelings of unconditional love.

Constituent Highlight

Sandalwood is very high in sesquiterpene alcohols. This constituent helps encourage deep relaxation of the nervous system, making this essential oil ideal to enhance meditation and prayer. For centuries, people have used sandalwood in spiritual practices and to open the mind.

Who Should Use Sandalwood Essential Oil

Sandalwood is a great choice for adults and children who need grounding and emotional support. Diffuse or apply topically to allow the woody fragrance uplift the emotions and promote clarity of thought. You may also want to add it to your skincare routine for a silky smooth finish.

Companion Products

I love to combine sandalwood with rose for a lovely, intoxicating fragrance in a bath or massage. You can also place a few drops in Rose Ointment for a soothing balm.

Don’t Have Sandalwood Essential Oil?

Sacred Sandalwood is another great option with very similar benefits to emotions and skin.
