This is a beautiful sustainably harvested Hawaiian Sandalwood with an aroma that is much like the Indian Sandalwood, deep, beautiful and rich! Sandalwood has a relaxing and soothing effect on the nervous & hormonal systems. Its aroma has a way of quieting the mind and settling the breath. Sandalwood is stimulating to the immune system. One outstanding effect of Sandalwood is its affinity for the throat.
Sandalwood has been used for centuries as incense. Its aroma has a way of calming and quieting the mind, settling the breath. Add to unscented liquid soap and in foot massage creams to experience the soothing, strengthening and grounding effects. It has a woody, balsamic, sweet aroma. Sandalwood is also used as a moisturizer and antiseptic for skin concerns. You can put a bit of it on a warm cloth and use that as a compress for dry or dehydrated skin. This species of Sandalwood leaves the roots of the tree intact so the tree can grow back. See our blog on Sandalwood.

When a sore throat coming on, put a drop under your chin and on your neck and the sore throat will often clear up within a few hours. If you feel a cold coming on, use the Sandalwood, and try a few steams with Eucalyptus, Ravintsara and Pine. Then try a hot bath with Rosewood and Roman Chamomile. This ritual can prevent a cold from settling in.Recipes
