Indian Sandalwood Product Sheet

Indian Sandalwood has been used spiritually for thousands of years. In India the Sandalwood tree is considered sacred.

Sandalwood has a warm, woodsy, earthy aroma that has been used for creating a peaceful atmosphere, quieting the mind, and helping reduce nervous tension. It can be added to a bath to help you relax and unwind after a busy day! Use it when your throat is tender to help soothe the pain and be back to normal once again.

Sandalwood is a great source to help keep the skin clean. Our Sandalwood comes from a plantation in Australia to help preserve the trees in India. Every batch of Plant Therapy Indian Sandalwood can be traced back to where the actual trees were grown to ensure that we are doing our part to product 100% pure, undiluted, ethically sourced Indian Sandalwood Essential Oil.

To soothe a tender throat, mix 1 drop Niaouli and 1 drop Indian Sandalwood with a half teaspoon of your favorite Plant Therapy carrier oil and massage on the front and back of the neck.

For a relaxing bath that is comforting to the senses and nourishing to the skin, add 1 drop each of Jasmine Absolute, Indian Sandalwood, and Sweet Orange and mix with 1 tablespoon of body wash or bubble bath and add to a warm bath. Relax and enjoy!

5.0 5  Sore Throat Relief

I got this because I read it was one of the best oils for relieving the pain of a sore throat. I got to try that out this past week and can attest to its effectiveness. I used it with equal parts Frank C and a bit of Lemon in a carrier oil on the front of my neck, and I had significantly less discomfort for several hours.

4.0 5  well ...

I am one of the few that has some sort of gene that sandalwood, to me, smells like urine. How sad it that? I guess this doesn't happen to everyone. I purchased this to use to diffuse in our bedroom. It is supposed to help you remember your dreams and it does. So in that respect it works as I wanted it to. I just have to mix it with something else, like vanilla to take the other smell out of my sense.

5.0 5  Absolutely love it!

I love this oil, it is sweet and subtle at the same time. I diffuse it at night, wear it as a perfume during the day!

5.0 5  Beautiful

This oil is my absolute favorite. It is warm and grounding and so comforting and luxurious at the same time. I love diffusing it and wearing it as perfume. I tried another company's sandalwood and it truly did not compare. If you're hesitant to buy it because of the price, I understand, but it's definitely worth it! When I'm ready to splurge, I'll be buying another bottle.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

recommend  No, I wouldn't recommend this to a friend.
