Sacred Sandalwood Essential Oil

Life is busy. Who has time to let a cold, cough or headache slow them down. Definitely not you. Sacred Sandalwood, with its distinctly warm, woodsy and sweet aroma, is both uplifting and soothing at the same time. In addition to being a comforting ally in relieving cold and headache symptoms, Sacred Sandalwood essential oil also relieves symptoms of digestive discomfort and induces relaxation, creating an overall sense of calm and wellbeing.

Sandalwood is a popular base note in many perfumes and fragrances. With its delightful aroma, Sacred Sandalwood is the perfect complement to pampering spa treatments, evening quiet time, yoga and meditation. It’s sure to become a go-to favourite in your essential oil collection.

To ensure the purest, most authentic oil possible, Young Living’s Sacred Sandalwood essential oil comes from the highly sought-after Santalum album tree species transplanted from its native home in India to our partner farm in Australia, which has a similar landscape and climate. From there, each step of the cultivation process is closely regulated and monitored according to our strict Seed to Seal® guidelines.

In Aromatherapy, Sacred Sandalwood can also be used topically or inhaled:

  • As a nervine and calmative, enhancing relaxation
  • As a carminative and antispasmodic for symptomatic relief of digestive discomfort
  • To help relieve colds and coughs
  • To help relieve headaches
