Australian Sandalwood, Santalum spicatum, is one of the top Sandalwood varieties used in the world of incense and perfumery. This species is the perfect substitute for the more expensive and endangered wild Indian Sandalwood.
Sandalwood is a sacred tree used in many different religious practices. This precious aromatic hardwood is considered to have a strong spiritual and divine connection. As incense it has been used to aid meditation, prayer, ritual, and healing in many cultures. It is known in the East to help achieve higher states of consciousness and connect worshipers to higher realms of spirit, wisdom, and inner unity.
Sandalwood is an important medicine in Ayurveda, Tibetan, and Traditional Chinese medicine. Burned as incense for its ability to clear the mind and senses, Sandalwood is also said to align the mind, body, and spirit. It is widely used as a sweet, uplifting ingredient in perfumery and enjoyed aesthetically as incense in the renowned Japanese incense ceremony, the Koh-do.
