The benefits of Sandalwood

Sandalwood belongs to the woody fragrance family as the name suggests it is distinctive by its woody character with notes coming from barks and roots. With both warm and soft notes, the scent of sandalwood is ideal to use all year round.

Sandalwood is believed to stimulate the seventh Chakra, improving emotional wellbeing, and give you feelings of enthusiasm, energy, and self-esteem. The physical benefits of Sandalwood fragrance are both grounding and uplifting. It is used to promote better sleep and improve focus and memory.

 Sandalwoods scent also makes it a popular choice for perfumes and aftershaves and is used in a wide variety of male grooming products. 

Research suggests that some studies have supported the idea that Sandalwood has health perks, for example :

: Anti inflammatory

: Manage anxiety

: Support wound healing

: Fight bacteria

Sandalwood may have anti inflammatory effects by altering cell signalling in the body. There is some evidence that sandalwood may help decrease inflammation in the case of skin disorders also.

Sandalwood has also been used for years to relieve anxiety and some studies show a significant reduction in high blood pressure when inhaling Sandalwood.

One of the more popular uses of Sandalwood that is used all around the world is for religious practises and in meditation. It is said to bring people closer to the divine, inciting calmness and clearing the mind.
