This creates deep relaxation of the nervous system and that is why it has been used for centuries to enhance meditation and prayer.

I personally like to use to help me relax and focus during meditation.

What is the Genus Species? Santalum album

Why is this Information Important? There are several different species of Sandalwood that are grown in other countries that may not have the same properties due to differences in chemistry.

Some companies may try to substitute a species within the family and try to sell it for therapeutic grade oil! So make sure you know your source and you are purchasing the right genus species!

Where is Sandalwood from? Sandalwood is an evergreen tree that is native to southern Asia and is typically grown in India. The oil comes from the heartwood of the tree.

Sacred Sandalwood is grown in the Northern Outback of Australia. And Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood (Santalum paniculatum) is grown in the islands of Hawaii.

Why is this Information so Important? It's not, it's just a fun fact!
