sandalwood

introduction

sandalwood is one of the most popular essential oils in aromatherapy. Known as one of the most grounding and stabilizing essential oils, it has a number of benefits when applied topically. These properties are due in large part to rich concentrations of sesquiterpene alcohols, especially alpha- and beta-santalol. The presence of the santalol compounds has not been detected in any other CPTG® essential oil in measurable amounts, but together they make up about 70 percent of the chemical composition of sandalwood.

History

Although santalol was not isolated until the 20th century, its properties have been used for millennia as the different types of sandalwood have been widely used in their native lands since ancient times. Sandalwood grows natively around the world in areas such as Nepal, the Pacific Islands, Sri Lanka, Australia and India, and it is universally valued for its health benefits. Many of these properties have been explored by modern scientific research, and studies isolating the santalol compounds have shown that many of the dominant properties of sandalwood essential oils likely to be heavily influenced by those complex and slow metabolizing sesquiterpenes.

Use

In vitro research suggests that both alpha and beta santalol applied topically may help soothe the skin and promote healthy skin. Further experimental research suggests that topical application of alpha-santalol promotes overall skin health.

Santalol also has surface cleaning properties and is known to protect against environmental threats.
