Essential oil of Sandalwood is very effective for cleansing the skin and is delightful to add to facial and massage oils, aftershaves, bath oils, moisturizers and creams. It is a natural astringent and has inherent antifungal, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic qualities. So, it naturally tones and firms skin and is effective for oily complexions.
Perhaps the most important skin benefit organic Sandalwood offers is, it's a wonderful emollient, highly effective in healing dry, chapped, sensitive and inflamed skin. To revitalize dehydrated, dry skin, simply apply a warm compress to the afflicted area. Then blend 10 drops of pure East Indian Sandalwood essential oil with 6 drops of Geranium and 30ml Sweet Almond oil; then use to gently massage into the affected area.
