Within flavour and fragrance, Sandalwood Album delivers a striking woody base note, and acts as a fixative, to ensure the longevity of perfume on the skin. 47% of all perfumes created since 1790 contain sandalwood notes that include:

Within traditional Chinese medicine or TCM, sandalwood, known as Tan Xiang in China, has been used by herbalists and practitioners to treat a number of ailments.
These include skin diseases, acne, dysentery, gonorrhea, anxiety, cystitis, fatigue, frigidity, impotence, nervous tension, eczema, stomach-ache, vomiting and stress (Misra & Dey 2013).
Sandalwood has also been found to be particularly effective in regulating Qi ﬂow (vital energy), warming to harmonise the stomach and to eliminate pain (Yan, Liu & Lin 2012).
Sandalwood has been used for thousands of years by Buddhists to enable a strong focus and connection to meditative space, whether is be applied to the third eye between the eyebrows, or burned as oil or incense during meditation or prayer. Traditionally, Buddhists used sandalwood oil as a therapy for anxiety, depression and insomnia, while Tibetan monks have used it to relax the body and focus the mind (Heuberger et al 2006).
People of Hindu faith use sandalwood in many of their religious ceremonies including funerals, daily worship and to purify sacred places. According to the Vamana Purana, an ancient Hindu text, sandalwood is recommended for use in worshiping the god Shiva, and it is believed that the goddess Lakshmi resides in the sandalwood tree.
Sandalwood is among the precious approved fragrances in the Islamic faith including amber, jasmine, myrrh and musk. During the Eid-al-Fitr holiday, Muslim people have been known to burn incense and use sandalwood oil as fragrance to commemorate the end of Ramadan.
Over three tonnes of sandalwood was burned on Gandhi's funeral pyre and 500 million sandalwood incense sticks are burned during worship each day in India.
