Sandalwood is very beneficial to the skin; it can help reduce the appearance of skin imperfections and it promotes a healthy, smooth complexion. Sandalwood has a sweet, woody aroma that can enhance mood. A 2006 study found that although sandalwood was relaxing when smelled or rubbed on the skin, it surprisingly did not promote drowsiness like lavender. Instead, it promoted what researchers referred to as a harmonious feeling. Sandalwood is an excellent anti-viral agent. It has been found to be beneficial to prevent replication of common viruses. It can be applied to the skin to reduce inflammation from mild skin irritation such as superficial wounds, pimples, warts, or boils. (**always test the oil on a small area before applying it directly to the skin & mix it with a carrier oil first). If you have a sore throat, you can also gargle with a cup of water with a few drops of sandalwood oil added.
A 2014 study found that the active ingredient in sandalwood called santalol did help decrease inflammation markers in the body called cytokines.
