Top Ten Uses of Sandalwood Essential Oil

Scientific name: Santalum album. Sandalwood has been used for thousands of years for everything from incense and perfume, to building temples and embalming the dead. A Sandalwood tree has to be at least thirty years old before it begins to produce essential oil. Sandalwood oil is very thick and comes out of the bottle slowly. It is a rich, luxurious oil.

1. Reduce stress and anxiety, soothe the emotions, ease depression, calm irritability and aggression, and promote compassion. Sandalwood has long been used as an aphrodisiac. Diffuse or apply topically.

2. Use as a perfume. Simply apply a drop to your pulse points, just like you would perfume. Sandalwood has been used as perfume or in perfume blends for at least 4,000 years!

3. Add 1-2 drops to 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon of carrier oil and use for a facial or to replace lotion. Sandalwood prevents dryness, rashes, flakiness, and other common skin problems.

4. Apply a drop daily to a scar or skin spot. You can watch as it gradually disappears.

5. Do you have a child who is experiencing growing pains (either emotionally or physically)? Have them apply a drop to the bottom of each foot (starting with the right foot) each day. The constituents in Sandalwood work together to balance all of the body systems and encourage cellular communication. This creates harmony within the body both physically and mentally helping the child find balance as they deal with the changes in their bodies and life. Its anti-inflammatory action will assist in reducing the physical growing pains as well. Works great for adults, too!

6. Apply a drop to your hair after showering. Not only will this make it so the scent stays with you, it will also be pulled into your body through the hair follicles.

7. Sandalwood is marvelous for the respiratory system. Diffuse it or apply a drop to the chest. It will ease a cough, soothe a sore throat, assist with laryngitis, and assist with respiratory infections.

8. Use as an aftershave lotion (add 1-2 drops to 1 teaspoon of carrier oil or water) to avoid a shaving rash.

9. Sandalwood contains the constituent Epi-beta-santalol which interrupts the communication system of a virus. Because of this the use of Sandalwood can assist your body in ridding itself of a viral infection. (A virus cannot reproduce if it cannot communicate.)

10. Sandalwood contains several constituents that specifically target the urinary tract system and reproductive areas. It not only tones, but it also can assist with virus based or induced tumors (these often affect the reproductive areas). It can provide the body with the tools to combat cystitis and urinary tract infections as well.

Only use essential oils that are truly 100% pure, such as Be Young oils. Oils that are cut or synthetic can have dangerous side effects. Always error on the side of caution and use common sense.
