What is Sandalwood?
Sandalwood is considered a sacred oil by the Buddhist and Hindi religions and is often used to promote prayer, meditation, and yoga practices.
Its oil, and its corresponding aroma, are obtained from the bark of a shrub known as citrine sandal, originating in India, Australia, and Indonesia.
The place linked to the production of Sandalwood products is Mysore, in southern India. Unfortunately, the extensive and blind use of this tree has endangered its existence, and currently, the Indian Santalum album is rare, expensive, and the trees are under government protection.
Another Sandalwood with pleasing olfactory qualities is Santalum Austrocaledonicum. It’s currently the most in aromatherapy for the sustainability of its production.
Years ago there was no talk of sustainability, and therefore trees and plants were used without thinking of the consequences … which were then seen and have been disastrous.

Ayurvedic medicine uses it to treat some psychophysical disorders, and it seems that its virtues – which we will soon see – actually act on the well-being of body and mind.
Essential oils are, in fact, natural products that are safe for health and can also be applied directly to the skin. Sandalwood is a fragrance widely used also in the form of fire sticks.
The price of pure essential oil is quite high however, it is a versatile and multi-purpose product that can be used in many ways and for various purposes.
