Many people love using sandalwood essential oil to beautify and nourish skin, as well as to uplift and ground the emotions.
What It’s For
Sandalwood is found in many skincare products because it moisturizes and supports healthy skin. When used during meditation, prayer and yoga, it encourages focus and helps to center the body and mind.
Interestingly, sandalwood essential oil is useful for releasing the emotions of fear and dread. The gentle, slightly sweet and woody aroma of sandalwood is uplifting and calming to erratic thoughts and worries. When the mind is relaxed and open, it can encourage intuition as well as feelings of unconditional love.
Sandalwood is very high in sesquiterpene alcohols. This constituent helps encourage deep relaxation of the nervous system, making this essential oil ideal to enhance meditation and prayer. For centuries, people have used sandalwood in spiritual practices and to open the mind.
Who Should Use Sandalwood Essential Oil
Sandalwood is a great choice for adults and children who need grounding and emotional support. Diffuse or apply topically to allow the woody fragrance uplift the emotions and promote clarity of thought. You may also want to add it to your skincare routine for a silky smooth finish.
