Sandalwood (santalum spicatum)

Sandalwood is a world-famous, sacred wood that is derived from certain trees that typically grow in the Indian sub-continent and are renowned for their aroma and fragrance. First discovered more than 4000 years ago, this wood is often used as a medicine and cosmetic product because of the soft, creamy, milky oil that it produces. It is also extremely essential and revered in most Asian religions such as Hinduism, Islam, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism and Jainism. Apart from the fragrance, the health benefits of these woods are found to have numerous complete-body benefits. Some of them are as follows:

Sandalwood for skin care: Sandalwood is often turned into a paste or a scrub and used all over the body for various problems and ailments. From anti-tanning, anti-aging, pimple and acne treatment to prickly heat repulsion, skin softening, itch relief and clear complexion, sandalwood is a natural ingredient found in many skin care products. It opens pores in the skin, treats rashes and allergies and is extremely useful as it doesn’t have any known side effects.
Sandalwood for fragrance: The oil from sandalwood is equally as potent as the paste used in moisturisers. Sandalwood oil produced from the highest quality Australian grown sandalwood is used along with other oils in many of the Arianrhod Aromatics perfumes. The end result is a very aromatic scent that is often associated with holiness and purity in many religions.
Sandalwood for a healthy lifestyle: There have been numerous tests and experiments conducted over time finding that sandalwood has the ability to ease and relax nerves, muscles and body aches. It has apparent benefits in teeth formation, ocular diseases and is a natural disinfectant. It is often used to even keep blood pressure under control. A strong ingredient to keep germs and bugs away, sandalwood is ideal to include for keeping hands and bodies healthy and clean without harsh soaps.

It has a long-lasting impact on aging and tanning and prevents many skin-related diseases from reappearing, treating them very quickly.
