What are the spiritual virtues of sandalwood?

Sandalwood is a fragrant tree that has been known for centuries for its spiritual, energetic and cosmetic virtues.

Sandalwood, a sacred plant in many spiritual traditions

Sandalwood covers several arboreal species found in countries as diverse as India, Nepal and Australia. The Santalaceae family is characterized by an aromatic wood of white, yellow or red color. It can be ground to a powder and mixed with water, milk or rosewater to form a fragrant paste with therapeutic properties. Good for the skin, sandalwood cures skin inflammations and infections. A recognized antiseptic in phytotherapy, its benefits and properties also extend to spiritual well-being.
A must in aromatherapy, sandalwood offers a precious essential oil with intoxicating notes. Highly prized in the world of perfume, it captures the top notes of other plants. Sandalwood is also said to combat stress and anxiety, and stimulate awareness, interiorization and creativity. Its soothing virtues make it an ideal plant for restoring harmony and warding off negative energies in the home.

Sandalwood has many spiritual and energetic benefits.


Very present in Hindu and Buddhist cultures, sandalwood is a sacred plant with spiritual properties sought after in religious rituals. Its purifying and protective action on body and mind makes it an indispensable ingredient in certain purification ceremonies, as well as in meditation.

The spiritual properties of sandalwood

The emblematic incense of many Asian and African countries, sandalwood is used to make woody, amber-scented embalming pastes. In Ayurveda, sandalwood is used to stimulate the senses, stop mental ruminations and uplift the spirit. It purifies the 7 chakras, in particular the Muladhara root chakra, linked to balance, grounding and connection with the universe.

Natural sandalwood essence accompanies meditation, balances the emotions and facilitates spiritual harmony. Sandalwood is also closely linked to the second Svadhisthana chakra, the center of the unconscious that contains emotions, creativity and empathy.

A channeler of energies, sandalwood is burned before meditation and relaxation, or applied as a balm to the body to promote understanding of oneself and others. Widely used in yoga and reiki, sandalwood incense and resins purify your interior, aiding concentration, serenity and dialogue.
