Many people have heard of sandalwood as a scent. But not many people know where it comes from or what it can be used for. To help shed some light on what all the fuss is about concerning Sandalwood scented candles, here is a brief breakdown on what Sandalwood is, where it comes from, and why it is something you should own.
Sandalwood is the name of the essential oil distilled from roots and heartwood of trees that have reached 50-80 years of maturity. Aromatherapists use every part of the heartwood to draw out this scent, including the sawdust. This makes it an extremely difficult process, but people have been doing this for 100s of years.
The technical name of this scent is called chandana. It is used in aromatherapy to induce relaxing and calming sensation. It is also widely known to be an aphrodisiac. It is similar to the human pheromone “alpha androsterole”. It is also used as an anti-depressant, an anti-inflammatory, a sedative, an antiseptic, and many other things.
Sandalwood has a rich, woody, fragrance. It has a delicate and calming effect. It is perfect for anyone who suffers from insomnia, anxiety, or nervousness. The oil will also help clear up acne, moisturize skin, and subdue rashes. Most aromatherapists carry it, as well, as nature stores. But since this is high demand item, it is usually overpriced.
