Sandalwood, scientifically known as Santalum album, is a fragrant-wood species found in tropical regions of Southeast Asia. Sandalwood has long been revered for its therapeutic and medicinal properties.
The oil extracted from the wood contains strong antimicrobial compounds that help to reduce acne and prevent skin infections. Its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties make it an effective remedy for conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea.
Another benefit of sandalwood is its ability to relieve anxiety and promote relaxation due to its calming effect on the mind. It can also be used as an expectorant that helps to relieve coughs and chest congestion.
