Australian Sandalwood has very similar applications to Indian Sandalwood, although its aroma is somewhat different, and it has stronger antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory activity. Sandalwood is considered one of the most precious and sacred oils and has been used since ancient times in religious ceremonies as well as for cosmetic and perfume purposes. Its cooling, balancing and restorative effects bring harmony to both the body and mind.

Nature/Essence – Harmonising & Calming

One of the most precious oils for skin care, Sandalwood helps balance, soften and soothe dry, chapped, red or irritated skin, and rejuvenates mature or prematurely aging skin. It aids regeneration, tones and firms while restoring a smooth clear complexion. Australian Sandalwood has pronounced antimicrobial and calming activity for eczema, psoriasis, wounds, acne and fungal conditions.

As an inhalation, compress or chest rub Sandalwood helps ease respiratory congestion, dry coughs and a sore throat. It can also be applied to the kidney region to support urinary health. Sandalwood is considered a tonic to help restore balance and support immune health.

Sandalwood is deeply relaxing and calming. It aids inner strength when feeling weak, fearful or lacking confidence, and promotes inner peace when feeling stressed, irritated or aggressive. Sandalwood helps quiet the mind and is a good oil to help deal with past trauma and fears. It instils a sense of warmth and openness, and has long been considered an aphrodisiac.

A popular oil to diffuse during meditation, and to encourage a warm, open and sensual atmosphere.

Awesome properties

Sandalwood EO has some exceptional properties in formulations but it is quite expensive.
