Description

About Sandalwood:

Sandalwood is a class of woods from trees in the genus Santalum. The woods are heavy, yellow, and fine-grained, and unlike many other aromatic woods, they retain their fragrance for decades. Sandalwood is the second most expensive wood in the world, after African Blackwood. Both the wood and the oil produce a distinctive fragrance that has been highly valued for centuries.

In Hinduism and Ayurveda, sandalwood is thought to bring one closer to the divine. Thus, it is one of the most used holy elements in Hindu and Vedic societies.

In the Buddhist tradition, the Sandalwood scent is believed by some to transform negativities, and help the practitioner to maintain concentration during meditation. It is also one of the most commonly scents used when offering incense to the Buddha and the Guru.

Healing Properties:

Sandalwood is said to promote awareness, and offer protection to the wearer.

It can also help to create relaxation and reduce over thinking and nervousness.
