How to Use Sandalwood: Oil, Powder, and Blocks

Sandalwood is a versatile and beneficial product that can be used in many different ways. Here's how to use sandalwood oil, powder, and blocks to experience the full benefits of this amazing natural product.

Using Sandalwood blocks

Sandalwood blocks can be used for aromatherapy purposes. Simply place the block in a bowl or on a heat-resistant surface and light a candle or tea light underneath. The heat will release the fragrance of the sandalwood and create a calming and relaxing atmosphere.
For the sticks light the tip until there is a small flame. After 1 minute, blow it out so only smoke is produced. Place it embers-down on an angle in a fireproof bowl so that the embers will get enough air to continue to burn and gently blow on the embers when needed.
Skin Care:
Sandalwood blocks can also be used as a natural skincare product. Grate a small amount of the block and mix it with a carrier oil such as coconut oil or jojoba oil. This mixture can be used as a face mask, body scrub or moisturizer.
Decorative Purposes:
Sandalwood blocks can be used as a decorative piece in your home or office. The natural texture and color of the wood will add a warm and inviting element to any space.

Using Sandalwood powder

For Sandalwood Powder, simply make a little ‘pyramid ‘ in a heat safe dish and light the top. The powder will slowly burn and provide you with a grounding and calming Sandalwood aroma throughout your home.
Skin care:
Mix sandalwood powder with water to create a paste, and apply it to your face as a natural face mask. The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of sandalwood can help to reduce acne and improve skin complexion.
Hair care:
Add sandalwood powder to your shampoo or conditioner to help soothe a dry and itchy scalp. The antimicrobial properties of sandalwood can help to reduce dandruff and other scalp irritations.

Using Sandalwood oil

  • Add a few drops of sandalwood oil to a diffuser to enjoy its relaxing and calming aroma.
  • Mix a few drops of sandalwood oil with a carrier oil, such as jojoba or almond oil, and use it as a massage oil to help relieve stress and tension.
  • Apply a small amount of sandalwood oil to the back of your neck, temples, or wrists to help promote relaxation and reduce anxiety.
