The value of Indian Sandalwood in the holistic practice of aromatherapy goes far beyond its woody, evoking scent. Long revered for its ability to calm the mind, recent studies have shed light on the science behind this natural phenomenon. When the alpha santalol content in the tree’s oil is absorbed through the skin, scientists have observed a reduction in eye blink rate, pulse rate and systolic blood pressure –all common markers of an overstimulated nervous system1. Further research identified that, when inhaled, this same content induces a state of relaxation, particularly during a stressful experience2,3, 4.
Whether used in a diffuser, burnt as incense, or applied topically to the skin the therapeutic benefits of Indian sandalwood can be deeply felt.
Essential oils and aromatherapy are set to infiltrate the wellness and beauty markets as an increased consumer interest in holism and wellbeing continues to drive self-care and functional fragrance trends.
Indian sandalwood oil’s benefits extend beyond the nose - its concentrated alpha santalol content exhibits therapeutic properties when absorbed through the skin.

Indian sandalwood contains the highest level of beta santalol compared to other species of sandalwood. The compound is believed to be the powerhouse behind Indian sandalwood’s fragrant properties. Alpha santalol is said to be responsible for the therapeutic nature of the oil and beta santalol gives Indian sandalwood its beautiful olfactory profile.
