Sandalwood : Benefits, Uses, Dosage, Side Effects, Price

1What is Sandalwood?

Sandalwood (Santalum Album) or Chandan is considered to be sacred in Hinduism. It also holds an integral position in several religions and cultures like Jainism, Buddhism, Sufism, Zoroastrianism, Chinese, Japanese and Korean.

The wood is heavy, yellow and fine-grained which retains its fragrance for decades. These slow-growing trees are of high value and it is the second most expensive wood in the world. Sandalwood is often used as a base in incense sticks, aftershave, perfumes and cosmetics.

She's also a pluviophile who loves cracking not-so-appropriate meal time jokes, as well as binging on romance fiction and Lana Del Rey.
