In our modern and fast-paced world, stress, anxiety, irritability, sleeping problems, and brain fog have become a common part of our lives. Fortunately, aromatherapy can help alleviate these issues and promote relaxation and well-being. Sandalwood oil, has been used in aromatherapy for centuries and has gained popularity in recent years for its calming and grounding properties.
Scientific evidence suggests that the calming effect of sandalwood oil comes from its santanol content. Santanols are naturally occurring compounds found in sandalwood oil that promote relaxation and can reduce anxiety and stress levels. Indian Sandalwood (Santalum Album) Oil, available at The Sandalwood Shop, contains a higher percentage of santanols compared to Australian Sandalwood (Santalum Spicatum) making it a highly sought-after essential oil.
