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. Cooling and grounding.

Emotional and Energetic Qualities
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

Non-toxic, non-irritating. The oil is often adulterated, so having quality assurance through a GC is vital. According to Tisserand, although very rare, it may cause skin sensitization, and suggests safe topical application of 2%.
The suggested shelf life is 6-8 years.
