In addition to India, Sandalwood grows in Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, western Australia and various Pacific Islands, including Vanuatu and New Caledonia
Extraction: Sandalwood essential oil is created from the steam distillation of the core wood, also called the “heartwood” of the tree
Sandalwood is considered to exert the following therapeutic actions: analgesic, antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, antiseptic, aphrodisiac, astringent, bactericidal, diuretic, emollient, expectorant, insecticidal, sedative and tonic.
Sandalwood is clarifying and stilling for the mind, “diminishing the tyranny of the intellect, of the incessant need to overthink, it instills in its place an experience of inner unity –a state where body, mind and Spirit can realign as one”. Sandalwood helps us “zoom out” to a spiritual-unity consciousness while simultaneously guiding us deeper and deeper into an embodied experience in this now timeless moment.
Therapeutic status: Mild remedy with no cumulative toxicity. Topical Safety Status: Non skin-irritant, non-sensitizing
