Sandalwood Remedies


Sandalwood - Research:
There are currently very few studies being done on sandalwood.5  One published study investigated sandalwood oil in the form of a patch applied to the skin instead of as an inhaled fragrance. The study focused on whether sandalwood had physiological and behavioral arousal properties.5  
 
East Indian and Australian sandalwood oil are both used extensively in detergents, soaps, creams, and lotions, and as incense for their fragrance.2
