SANDALWOOD is used in incense through the chippings and wood powder of the Santalum album and Santalum rurum trees. According to Ayurveda, Sandalwood has been a favourite dhoop for embalming since ancient times. Its calming effect is a useful aid to meditation, and the wood, chips and powder have been used in many different religious cultures – it is the sacred incense of the Hindu religion, and is also used in Islam and the Japanese Shinto religion.

The chemistry of Sandalwood is similar to various human hormones, and like Aloeswood, appears to have pleasant psychoactive properties. Sandalwood can help soothe nervous tension and anxiety, and bring a sense of peace and acceptance. Our pure Sandalwood powder has a beautifully sweet, woody scent.
