100% Pure Sandalwood Essential Oil (Australian) - Premium Grade
You’ll almost certainly recognise the distinctive, exotic aroma of Sandalwood Essential Oil, with its deeply earthy, woody tones laced with balsamic notes. AWO’s Sandalwood Essential Oil is high grade and premium quality, produced from steam distilling Australian sandalwood (Santalum spicatum). We can guarantee that it contains well above the average percentage of alpha santalol.
Sandalwood oil is of course indispensable in the perfume industry, but medicinally Sandalwood Essential Oil is well known for its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. It’s good for sore throats, chest infections and dry coughs. It can also help to relieve inflammation and itching, and has proven helpful for infected wounds, acne and boils.
Sedative rather than uplifting, it’s known as an effective relaxant if you’re feeling nervous or anxious. Plus Sandalwood Essential Oil’s aphrodisiac properties can assist with sexual issues such as impotence and frigidity – perhaps for this very reason.
Generally considered a balancing oil for the skin, it’s especially effective for dry and ageing complexions.
