One of the most prized essential oils, Indian sandalwood is known for having many health benefits, even if it isn’t as popular as other essential oils.

The oil is distilled from the fragrant inner wood of the sandalwood tree (Santalum album), a tree that takes about 40 years to mature and to produce oil at full potency. In recent times, they have become endangered – mainly owing to illegal logging – and there is now a world shortage of high quality Indian sandalwood oil.

As a result, producers have started looking to Australian sandalwood (Santalum spicatum), which is native to Western Australia, for an alternative supply. By managing these trees with care, the Australians can offer a sustainable source of sandalwood essential oil.

Australian sandalwood essential oil has a milder fragrance than the Indian form. Its chemical content is a bit different, but it offers the same benefits for both the mind and body.

Australian sandalwood oil has a deep, fruity-sweet smell and is antiseptic, astringent, soothing, relaxing, sedating and regarded as an aphrodisiac. In aromatherapy, it is used for meditation, insomnia, tension, stress, depression, loss of libido and emotional problems. For the body, it is said to nourish and regenerate dry or mature skin, help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and strengthen fingernails.

Using Sandalwood Essential Oil to Benefit the Mind

Australian sandalwood essential oil is also said to fortify an inner resolve to persevere through emotional challenges.

Here are several recipes that I use to aid in meditation and help with mental stress and hormonal mood swings:

  • To ease mental stress and burnout, take a bath with three drops of Australian sandalwood essential oil and three drops of lavender essential oil.

It is particularly beneficial in the relief of irritated skin, and has excellent properties for dry skin, mature skin and wrinkles. It is also a great fix for unhealthy nail issues.
