Dr. Nick Notes
My love for sandalwood has exponentially increased to a potentially unreal experience. This oil is a therapeutic healing essence offering some of the world’s richest notes: sweet in the most balanced, earthy & etheric descriptors imaginable. Hawaiian Sandalwood is the perfect essence – addicting in the best ways possible. I now understand the idea that no matter how much sandalwood oil a collector has, it will never be enough. My stock is being challenged each order of Sandalwood I fulfill and I’m honored to be in the position where I’m able to hold so much quantity in a single bottle.
Divinely sweet, earthy nectar, truly a precious oil produced from wood harvested from a sustainable eco-farm in the north part of Big Island Hawaii. As trees are harvested for product, room is made for the beginning of 3-6 new sprouts – this operation is intentionally hedging the amount of wood harvested each year to consider future generations.
If you enjoy blending and developing your own products including massage oils, botanical fragrances, therapeutic formulas, you will love Royal Sandalwood in your collection. Grab an ounce, if it’s available – you won’t ever regret your investment… chances are you will ask yourself one day why you didn’t get more when you had the chance… always consider this precious resource in limited supply.
Sandalwood may be very similar to frankincense in therapeutic effects. It may relieve symptoms associated with lumbago and the sciatic nerves, regenerating bone cartilage, catarrh, coughs, sore throat, tuberculosis, cystitis, lymphatic system, menstrual problems, acne, skin infection and regeneration of cells. As an emotional tool, may unlock trauma helping nervous tension, and stress-related complaints, elevate the mood, relax one into more restful sleep through deeper levels of relaxation. Sandalwood calms, harmonizes and balances the emotions.
Super helpful applied topically for herpes outbreak, effective against both HSV-1 + HSV-2 (though it’s more effective against HSV-1). Great for sensual experiences with lovers dropped into a warm bath with a few drops of rose oil. Sandalwood calms the nerves and deepens connection towards spiritual connection.
How to Use
Very useful in meditation. Diffuse or wear by applying neat in low amounts to reflex points of the feet and/or directly on area of concern. Add to creams or lotions: try 4-15 drops per 1 oz (30ml) of carrier oil/lotion. Excellent for skin care to balance overly oily skin, to nourish & hydrate and effective against acne. Infuse several drops into a bath with rose essence for a sensual experience, alone or with a partner. Soar with the kings ~ try 1 drop vaporized in an Essential VAAAPP for a cosmic treat.
Apply thin coat directly onto HPV lesions – see patent US 6132756 A. Rub into wrists, around third eye, neck, under the nostrils, into the feet, around sensual areas (DO NOT APPLY TO SENSITIVE AREAS ie. vagina, anus) like inner thigh. Perfect for blending with other EOs and botanical essences in botanical perfumery – try adding with cedar, citrus, florals and other heavenly notes. ~ In-JOY!
Very rare: may cause of adverse skin reactions including contact dermatitis and allergic reactions. Try skin patch test to assure compatibility prior to use on body.
