Sandalwood Essential Oil

  • Enlightening, centering sandalwood essential oil.

    This pure sandalwood essential oil is from the Vanuatu archipelago. Sandalwood, prized for its many healing qualities, must be trustingly sourced. The Vanuatu Sandalwood Eco-Project is powered by people who cherish and steward the sandalwood tree.

    Renowned for its calming, uplifting powers, sandalwood has long been a staple of sacred practice. A quintessential component to ritual and meditation, sandalwood calms a worried mind and creates a serene state of consciousness.

    Revered in perfumery, sandalwood is prized for its tranquil and nourishing fragrance. It centers the heart, enhances concentration, and opens intuition. The sensual, spicy-warm fragrance enhances romantic and sensual moods. It is considered highly sattvic, meaning that it promotes health, clarity, and a meditative calm.

    How to Use Sandalwood Essential Oil
    • Direct Palm Inhalation: Perhaps the easiest way to use bergamot oil is through a simple direct palm inhalation. Place a drop of this mood balancing oil in the palm of your hand, gently rub the palms together, bring them towards your face and take a deep inhalation. May also apply drops to the wrists, neck, crown of the head, and center of the chest
    • Diffuser: In the diffuser, a single drop helps promote a calm environment, which is also great for getting a deep, restful sleep (it helps settle kids down for bedtime, too).
    Interesting Sandalwood Essential Oil Information

    Sandalwood has a long history of use in ethno-botanical medicine, religious and ceremonial ritual, cosmetics, and perfumery. The practice of purification through prayer was often accompanied by burning incense such as sandalwood or frankincense resin. This use of sacred scents served the public’s health and spiritual refinement.

    Because of its rich fragrance and potent healing properties, and because the entire tree must be harvested in order to extract essential oil, sandalwood has become increasingly rare. It is now often over-harvested, illegally harvested, or from ecologically threatened areas due to deforestation. The vast majority of sandalwood oil on the market is adulterated or produced under unethical conditions. In response to these legal and ethical issues, some companies are now abandoning the sale of sandalwood oil. At the same time, this situation has given rise to numerous sustainable agro-forestry projects such as the Vanuatu Eco-Project.

  • Safety Considerations for Bergamot Essential Oil

    Though it is generally non-toxic and non-irritating, do not use on children younger than 5 years of age. Do not take sandalwood essential oil internally.
