Sandalwood is a class of woods from trees in the genus Santalum. The woods are heavy, yellow, and fine-grained.
Sandalwoods are medium-sized hemiparasitic trees, and part of the same botanical family as European mistletoe. Notable members of this group are Indian sandalwood and Australian sandalwood. These are found in Asia, Australia, Indonesia, Hawaii, and other Pacific Islands.
The sandal tree does very well on its own, and seems to appear in places it was never seen before.
A true sandalwood tree grows to a height of about 12 metres (39 feet); has leathery leaves in pairs, each opposite the other on the branch.
One of the oldest incense materials, sandalwood has been in use for at least 4,000 years.
Sandalwood is the second-most expensive wood in the world, after African blackwood. The wood oil prices have risen to $2,000 per kg recently.
Both the wood and the 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, it is also believed that goddess Lakshmi lives in the sandal wood 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 – useful aid to stimulate the libido 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.
