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.
