Therapeutic Grade Sandalwood tree Essential Oil. 

Sandalwood is the second-most expensive wood in the world, after African blackwood.
Revered for centuries in India and other parts of the Far East, Sandalwood (Santalum album) is a wonderfully calming oil which helps reduce nervous tension and agitated emotions. It is considered one of the premier oils for use in meditation by helping to quiet “mental chatter”. In skin applications, it may help reduce oiliness and blemishes. Sandalwood also can feel soothing and cooling to the skin when added to a carrier oil.
Sandalwood has been used since ancient times as incense for spiritual applications. Sandalwood Essential Oil is deeply grounding and is useful for chakra work.
Emotionally, Sandalwood Essential Oil is calming and helps to instill a sense of inner peace. It is a good choice to try in cases of stress, depression or low self esteem. Sandalwood is also considered an aphrodisiac.
Aromatically, Sandalwood Essential Oil is rich, woody yet sweet. It is frequently utilized in high end fragrances and is a favorite amongst both men and women. Sandalwood is a base note and helps round out blends.

MORE INFO

Sandalwood oil has a characteristic sweet, woody odour, a very grounding, but not overpowering, earthy aroma which is widely employed in the fragrance industry, but more particularly in the higher-priced perfumes. It has excellent blending properties and the presence of a large proportion of high-boiling constituents in the oil (about 90 percent santalols) also makes it valuable as a fixative for other fragrances. It’s an oil with a very high viscosity.

There are more than 15 different types of sandalwood in the world and oils will have a slightly different scent depending on the variety they’re produced from, even though it needs a trained nose to really smell these subtleties.
