Revered for centuries in India and other parts of the Far East, Sandalwood 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.
