Sandalwood Overview

Sandalwood has been used for years in aromatherapy to relieve symptoms of anxiety and promote sleep. 

A study reported in Planta Medica found that aromatherapy with sandalwood oil increased participants’ pulse, blood pressure, and perspiration. These are markers of alertness.

Another study reported in the Archives of Biochemistry and Biophysics suggests a compound found in sandalwood oil may help fight skin cancer. That compound is called α-santalol. Some studies have shown that this component can help promote cell death of cancerous cells.
