Sandalwood derives from trees in the genus Santalum where the woods are heavy, yellow, and fine-grained. The trees are medium-sized hemiparasitic trees, and part of the same botanical family as European mistletoe. Indian sandalwood and Australian sandalwood are notable members which are found in Asia, Australia, Indonesia, Hawaii, and other Pacific Islands.
These trees do very well on their own and seem to appear in places it has never been seen before.
A genuine sandalwood tree grows to about 12 metres (39 feet), has leathery leaves in pairs which are opposite on each branch.
As one of the oldest incense materials, it has been used for at least 4000 years.
Sandalwood is the second-most expensive wood in the world, after African blackwood and the oil produced from the wood has risen to $2000 per kg recently. The wood and oil produce a distinctive fragrance that has been highly valued for centuries.
Sandalwood in Buddhism.
Sandalwood is mentioned in various suttas of the Pāli Canon. The scent of this wood species is believed by some to transform one’s desires and maintain a person’s alertness while in meditation. It is also one of the most popular scents used when offering incense to the Buddha and the guru.
Sandalwood in Hinduism.
Indian sandalwood is very sacred in the Hindu Ayurveda and is known in Sanskrit as Chandana. The wood is used for worshiping the god Shiva and is also believed that goddess Lakshmi lives in the sandalwood tree. The wood of the tree is made into a paste using sandalwood powder. The paste is integral to rituals and ceremonies.
Sandalwood is also a known wood species in many other religions and their traditions.
The wood has been used in religious and social ceremonies for millennia. It is still used to facilitate meditation, move through stages of grief, and encourage creativity. It is also used to aid in cases of depression and anxiety and as an aphrodisiac. It is also useful to aid libido stimulation and overcome frigidity and impotence.
Sandalwood oil is extracted from the woods for use.
Due to its coveted fragrance, sandalwood oil is used as an ingredient in perfumes, cosmetics, and soaps.
The oil is commonly used in aromatherapy.
It is also a disinfectant and skin cell regenerating agent.

I got it from a friend, I wasn’t sure it will look good on a man’s hand as it is a unisex size watch but if fits great, the band is easy to adjust, looks different and elegant but fits to a casual outfit. People are asking about the watch as it has this original look, I was worried at first if it will last in time as it’s wood but it’s all ok and the most cool thing is that I like to simply watch at it, looks good on my hand + reminds you to live the NOW
William ngo –
These watches look super cool and organic. They are super light and feel very comfortable. Easy to change the links shorter or longer, just press in with some pressure and pops out. Great prices for couple’s package and even better for return customers. They offer a unique look and feel for sure so highly recommended!
Such a beautiful, down-to-earth watch which have an important reminder there ♥️ I have never wanted to wear a watch because it’s makes me go to this ”illusion of being in a rush”, but this one I can wear and it does the opposite 🙏🏻 Must say that I also got the sweetest customer service and the watch arrived really fast. Thank you so much!
