Sandalwood essential oil tonifies the nervous system, reduces stress and anxiety, and improves moods and attentiveness. It promotes a sense of calmness and mindfulness and is very supportive in times of stress and dealing with the ups and downs of life.
Sandalwood is often used as a perfume. As it is an essential oil (not a fragrance) it will naturally dissipate so reapply as often as desired.
In skincare, sandalwood balances, nourishes and softens the skin. It is antiseptic, bactericidal, fungicidal.
Sandalwood has been used for centuries in religious and spiritual ceremonies to promote feelings of calm and connection. It has also been a popular choice for embalming.
This luxurious oil is also available as a pure option or a 5% dilute option in a base of pure fractionated aroma-free coconut oil.

Traditionally sandalwood essential oil is sourced from trees grown and harvested in India. However, this resource has been over-harvested, so plantations in other countries now grow and carefully manage this majestic species.
Amour Natural sources sandalwood essential oil from sandalwood trees in carefully managed Australian plantations. This gives us Santalum spicatum which has a different aroma to Mysore sandalwood.
