Sandalwood essential oil (Santalum Spicatum) is obtained by the steam distillation of chips and billets cut from the heartwood of various species of sandalwood trees. These trees are heiparasitic evergreen that grows by joining the root system of other trees. Essential oil is extracted from matured sandalwood trees that are ages 40 to 80. The older the tree, the more oil available and the stronger the aroma.
Sandalwood oil has been used since over four thousand years ago, making it among the oldest-known materials used for its exotic scent. It has found its way in fragrances, cosmetics and personal care products. The oil has a woody, exotic smell that's subtle and lingering. Its colour ranges from pale yellow to pale gold. Although expensive, it has many wonderful characteristics that make it useful and beneficial for health and wellness. For one, sandalwood oil creates a calming, harmonizing effect for the mind, helping reduce tension and confusion.
Antiseptic – This oil is a good antiseptic agent and is safe for both internal and external application. It helps protect internal wounds and ulcers from infections; when applied to skin, it protects wounds, sores, boils, and pimples from getting infected.
Anti-inflammatory – The essential oil and paste are effective as anti-inflammatory agents. They have a cooling effect and relieve all types of brain, digestive, nervous, circulatory, and excretory system inflammation, which result from infections, fevers, antibiotic side effects, insect bites, wounds, and poisoning.
Antispasmodic – This oil works against spasms and contractions by relaxing nerves, muscles, and blood vessels.
Astringent – Although very mild, sandalwood oil can induce contractions in your gums, muscles, and skin, offering benefits like better muscle strength and a tighter skin.
Deodorant – There are individuals who use sandalwood oil to relieve body odour.
Disinfectant – Its fragrance keeps microbes and small insects away, which is why it is widely used in incense sticks, sprays, fumigants, and evaporators for disinfecting large areas.
Emollient – It soothes skin, relieves inflammation and irritation, cures infections, and promotes a fresh, cool feeling.
Expectorant – It is specifically effective in treating coughs, but it also fights the infections that cause the cough, cold, flu, or mumps.
Memory booster – Sandalwood oil improves memory and stimulates concentration. It keeps your brain cool and relaxed, and saves you from unnecessary stress and anxiety.
Tonic – It is soothing on your stomach and the digestive, circulatory, and nervous systems, helping them function harmoniously.
Anti-aging - Sandalwood is high in antioxidants that can help reduce damage caused by free radicals, which promote aging. Try adding 5 drops of sandalwood oil to an unscented lotion and applying it directly to the face for anti-aging benefits.
There are no major reported side effects to the use of sandalwood. Some people may experience minor skin irritation from its use.
