Man Found Standing Writes:
Sandalwood, Wild: India (Santalum album)
For millennia, the Sandalwood tree was valued as one of the most sacred trees that the Creator has given us by three major religions of the world, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Islam. Parts of the tree are used in the religious ceremonies and for religious artifacts. Over the past decade, the price for pure therapeutic Sandalwood has increased dramatically due to the shortage of trees, it’s the growing popularity, and the Indian government’s regulations on exporting Sandalwood products.
There are different types of Sandalwood found throughout the world, but the oil from India is considered the best. We have found that even slightly higher therapeutic oil can be extracted exclusively from the slowly steamed roots of the dying mature trees. The added labor costs and government restrictions have basically eliminated this oil being sold exclusively any more.
Primary Usage: Assists emotion issues (stress, self-confidence, negativity, grief, depression, fear, obsessions, egocentric behavior, loneliness, balancing) and assists to removes negative programming from the cells. A tonic for the urinary tract, kidneys, bladder (edema, cystitis, diuretic), lymph, immune system, and nerves(neuralgia, muscles spasms, sciatica). We have seen Sandalwood stop a seizure from developing and is wonderful to assist in bringing a person back into balance after a seizure. Just rub a drop on the ears and put a small amount under the nose.
