Sandalwood, known as Santalum album, is a valuable essential oil extracted through steam distillation from the heartwood of the Sandalwood tree. This evergreen tree, with a semi-parasitic nature, draws some nutrients from other plants during its growth. Sandalwood oil is renowned for its woody, grounding fragrance, characterized by subtle hints of sweetness and softness. As a classic beautiful base note in aromatherapy, a little goes a long way, thanks to its rich aroma and slightly viscous consistency.

Sandalwood essential oil boasts a range of health benefits, including:

  • Sedative properties
  • Anti-depressant effects
  • Emotional stability enhancement
  • Respiratory tonic attributes
  • Antiseptic

Sandalwood’s calming and grounding woody scent can help alleviate stress and overwhelm, making it beneficial for those struggling with sleep. It soothes frazzled nerves, promoting a sense of peace and relaxation. To enhance your sleep quality, consider using Sandalwood in an Aroma Spa Diffuser. Add the following drops approximately 30 minutes before bedtime:

  • 2 drops of Sandalwood (Santalum album)
  • 4 drops of Bergamot (Citrus bergamia)
  • 2 drops of Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
    Close your bedroom door to let the room fill with the soothing blend, and turn off the diffuser as you turn out the lights.

Sandalwood is a versatile essential oil for skincare, known for its soothing and moisturizing properties. It helps balance sebum production, making it suitable for all skin types. Additionally, it has been found effective in soothing conditions like Eczema and irritated or itchy skin. Try creating a luxurious face massage blend by adding the following essential oils to your preferred base oil, such as Jojoba oil:

  • 2 drops of Sandalwood (Santalum album)
  • 1 drop of Neroli (Citrus aurantium)
  • 1 drop of Frankincense (Boswellia carterii)
    Massage this blend into your skin after your regular cleansing routine to lock in moisture. This amount should last for approximately 3-4 applications.
    Always using high quality organic and sustainable essential oils.
