There are two types of sandalwood, white and red. These types can target different health issues. It also appears in healthcare products due to the health benefits. White sandalwood can also help with coughs and the common cold. Red, however, is used to promote general bodily health as it purifies the blood ridding the body of any toxins.

What is Sandalwood?

Sandalwood is a class of wood from the Santalum, which is a flowering plant. Most varieties of the plant are from either India, Hawaii, or Australia. Here at Ayumi, we use sandalwood extracted oil in our products which comes from East India. In the beauty industry, its use in perfume is due to its aromatic properties. The wood’s heavy and fine-grained quality makes it an extremely aromatic wood that retains its fragrance for decades. It’s also the perfect ingredient for skin and hair due to its healing and calming properties.

This makes it an ideal ingredient for sensitive skin as it works to reduce redness and inflammation. It is also well suited to calm and clear acne-prone skin. Try our Sandalwood skincare products for a gentle, skin-calming routine. Or as a part of a relaxing routine before bed to encourage a night of deep sleep, try the Sandalwood body care and envelope your senses in the aromatherapeutic experience.

If you are looking for something to promote general bodily health, red sandalwood could help. It treats health issues such as; digestive tract problems and fluid retention. Alternatively, in manufacturing, it’s used as a flavoring in alcoholic beverages.

It combats health issues by encouraging an increase in the loss of body water through the urine (diuretic effect) to reduce diarrhoea. For treating coughs or colds, the drying effect breaks up the mucus. This makes it easier to cough up and dispel any discomfort. It can also aid the blood purification process which, naturally clears out toxins from the body. This helps maintain the optimum health of the body in the long term.
