Best 15 Ways Ever To Use Sandalwood Oil (You Will Want To Know More About #10!)
Even if you didn’t know the name, chances are you have already smelled sandalwood. It has a woodsy, sweet, yet exotic scent that is easily recognizable. Sandalwood is perhaps one of the most popular incense sticks sold, and it is as old as time itself.
Most sandalwood oil comes from white sandalwood trees, which are tall, beautiful trees native to Eastern India. Although sandalwood trees used to be plentiful, their population is decreasing, which means the price of sandalwood oil is rising. If you find inexpensive sandalwood oil, it is most likely not real, but a cheaper oil with a synthetic scent. Always be certain that you are buying your oil from a reputable seller.
Sandalwood oil has been used for more than four thousand years, which makes it one of the oldest substances known to man. This oil is highly valued for its calming abilities on the mind, reducing tension and confusion. It’s often used in Ayurvedic medicine for the treatment of sleeping and mental problems.
Let’s take a look at the top 15 ways you can use sandalwood oil to calm the mind, heal the body, and much, much more.
1. Eases Anxiety
Whenever you experience anxiety, place a few drops of sandalwood oil on your palms or on a piece of clean cloth and then breathe in the beautiful scent for 30 second to one minute. Sandalwood oil will trigger endorphins in the brain which should calm you down and ease those feelings of anxiety in a matter of minutes.
2. Improves the Memory
Sandalwood oil stimulates concentration and improves the memory. It keeps your brain feeling cool, calm, collected, and relaxed so it can do its job without any unnecessary strain, anxiety, or stress clogging up the pathways. Put some sandalwood oil in a diffuser or burn some incense, and let your brain do the rest.
