Our East Indian sandalwood is rare and expensive because the trees from which it is distilled are carefully controlled to prevent over-harvesting. It has a unique aroma all its own, said to be a stimulating perfume in its own right. It has been studied for its ability to hydrate and support the skin, including preventing skin cancer. It is known to relax and clear the mind and is often used in meditation.
