Atlantic Aromatics, Sandalwood 5ml
Atlantic Aromatics Sandalwood Oil is an essential oil which can be calming, and may help reduce fear and stress. It was often used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat mild forms of anxiety. It is distilled from the Indian Santalum trees which have a history of medical use as well as use in perfumes. When diluted with a carrier oil, Sandalwood is also believed to possess the ability to eliminate blackheads and spots from the skin. This is because the main compound of Sandalwood is beta santalol which has natural microbial properties. In order to apply these anti-microbial properties to the skin, it is necessary to dilute the oil with a carrier oil such as almond oil. A tiny amount of the it can be dabbed on the skin and used as perfume.
