Grown in Asia and East India, Sandalwood was originally used at funeral ceremonies; burnt so the scent could carry the soul into the next life. The aroma — which retains its fragrance for decades — comes from the wood itself rather than the leaves or flowers. The warm soothing scent of sandalwood helps the mind to unwind and helps open the heart to love.
In ancient Buddhist tradition, Sandalwood has been celebrated as the perfect meditation tool for thousands of years. It is widely believed that the sandalwood scent can stimulate sensuality, grant a sense of awareness, invoke tranquility, awaken the divine thoughts within and promote profound relaxation. Burning sandalwood incense can benefit healing work by promoting a deeper relaxed state in the healer, increasing spiritual energy.
Sandalwood stimulates the base Chakra - believed to enhance trust and self-identity. In the Ayurvedic healing tradition, it promotes energy and enthusiasm; increasing a person's self-esteem and zest for life. It is also believed that burning sandalwood near your door welcomes your guests and subconsciously attunes them to your home’s positivity - encouraging them to leave their doubts and anger outside.
You can use the healing aroma of sandalwood to promote feelings of peace and serenity and also to ease various ailments of the digestive system. Breathing in the aromatic smoke from a sandalwood incense stick can help to lift melancholy and promote restful sleep. It subdues aggression and irritability, promotes compassion and openness and enhances meditation. Sandalwood is particularly good for stress relief, especially when combined with lavender or bergamot.
