Note: oils extracted from bark, resins, roots of trees or plants will NOT work with a nebulizer because these oils are too thick and will cause clogging. Sandalwood is a thicker oil, therefore it should not be diffused in a nebulizer; for inhalation, use these thicker essential oils ONLY with a diffuser. Read our FAQ page for the list of essential oils which are not recommended to use with a nebulizer.

Diffusion

Australian sandalwood oil is produced as an economical and ecologically responsible alternative to the more expensive Indian sandalwood. It has a soft, woody, and relaxing aroma that is very similar to Indian sandalwood, both of which share very similar properties. It’s known for its aphrodisiac properties as well as its powerful calming and grounding effect, which is why perfumers around the world have long made use of this oil when formulating perfumes, especially those for men.

Meditation and creativity: Sandalwood has a long tradition of being used in a spiritual context and particularly in meditation. In conjunction with a diffuser, the aroma promotes calm, balance, creativity and helps memory.

Grief, irritability and low self-esteem: Sandalwood is both a tonic and a sedative, and it can be effective against both low and anxious, irritable moods. Diffuse or apply a few drops to palms for a more direct inhalation.

Insomnia: when diffused, this oil can have relaxing benefits to promote a tranquil sleep.

Topical Application

Acne and eczema: sandalwood oil is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, and a few drops of the oil mixed with a carrier oil massaged into the skin can both help kill acne-causing bacteria and calm inflamed skin.

 Other Uses

Perfumery: it's widely used by perfume makers due to its lower cost, availability yet similar scent to Indian Sandalwood. It's probably the best oil to use as a healing perfume on a daily basis.

Home fragrance: use the oil, diluted in a spray bottle to refresh and create a pleasurable ambiance at home and at work. The effect is more powerful when it’s diffused in a diffuser.

Oil Specific: non-toxic, non-irritant and non-sensitizing.

General: keep out of reach of children and pets. Not for internal use unless taken under the supervision or recommendation of an aromatherapist professional. Do not use undiluted on skin, eyes, or mucous membranes; it could cause allergic reactions. Always test first on a small portion of your skin. If you are pregnant, consult with a healthcare provider/ professional experienced with essential oils as some essential oil are less tolerated while others are well loved by pregnant women.

Storage and Handling: in general the shelf life of ESSENTIAL OILS is usually around 1 year after they're opened, and up to 2 years when unopened. All essential oils oxidize and are subject to lose their therapeutic value and aromatic quality in time. Essential oils benefit from proper storage and handling. Avoid keeping essential oils in a location that is prone to sudden temperature changes such as the bathroom or kitchen. Store them in a cool, dark place, away from heat and light.
