Benefits for health

  • The most important medicinal use of Sandalwood essential oil is as a very powerful urinary antiseptic (used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine for at least 2500 years) to treat urinary tract infections, such as cystitis. It can also be used to treat gonorrhea (a sexual infection).
  • Being a very good antiseptic, this essential oil is a potent remedy for pulmonary conditions, especially for dry, persistent and irritating coughs, as it is also very sedative. You can also use it for chronic bronchitis, and for soothing sore throats.
  • Sandalwood essential oil is helpful for oily skins and acne, as it is slightly astringent and a powerful antiseptic. It is notably recommended for boys/teenagers who will be more likely to use it because it smells like a good-quality aftershave.

Emotional and psychological properties

  • Relaxing and slightly euphoric.
  • It is reputed to be an aphrodisiac, especially for women.
