Description

Sandalwood Santalum album, or Indian sandalwood, is a small tropical tree, and is the most commonly known source of sandalwood. It is native to India, Indonesia, and the Malay Archipelago. Certain cultures place great significance on its fragrant and medicinal qualities. It is also considered sacred in some religions and is used in different religious traditions. The high value of the species has caused its past exploitation, to the point where the wild population is vulnerable to extinction. Indian sandalwood still commands high prices for its essential oil, but due to lack of sizable trees it is no longer used for fine woodworking as before. This class (or, genre) is heavy, yellow, fine-grained, and unlike most other aromatic wood, the fragrance is retained for decades hence, Sandalwood oil may slowly be extracted for use. Both the wood and the oil produce a distinctive fragrance that has been highly valued for centuries.

    I started using blue stone back in Feb 2016. I now have over 50 of blue stone oils. Kibosh and Sandlewood are of on my favorites. I have severe knee problems bone on bone. I will not take narcotics so I guess
    Do alternative treatments. These two oils gave been a true God send along with Michelle and her help with blends. Definitely a must for pain relief and antiamflamatory releif.
