Sandalwood Beads

How To Use Sandalwood Beads as Part of a Holistic Health Approach

Sandalwood is considered a sacred wood in many cultures worldwide, respected for its Ayurvedic healing properties and spiritual uses. Sandalwood beads are celebrated as an ancient meditation tool in the Buddhist tradition, believed to calm the senses, increase your self-awareness, and restore emotional peace. The wood also comes in a powder or oil form, with many aromatherapy, cosmetic and alternative medicinal uses.

The Soothing Properties of Sandalwood Jewellery

Sandalwood releases a pleasant, subtle woody scent that is believed to evoke feelings of peace and serenity during meditation. Wearing the beads may also be beneficial for your physical health, helping to soothe pain and inflammation in different areas, including:

  • Skin. Sandalwood contains active ingredients alpha and beta-Santalol - compounds that exhibit anti-inflammatory properties. The wood shows promise in clinical trials of natural remedies for eczema, acne, and psoriasis. It may also inhibit yeast growth, helping reduce fungal infections, such as common warts and dandruff.
  • Headaches. Sandalwood’s purported anti-inflammatory and astringent properties make it one of the best natural remedies for a migraine or headache. Many headaches originate in the neck and shoulders, and wearing a sandalwood necklace may help soothe muscular tension in the area.
  • High blood pressure. Sandalwood is celebrated for its calming scent, believed to promote relaxation in many cultures. Wearing the beads may inspire a sense of tranquillity, reducing stress levels and high blood pressure over time.

Other Uses for Sandalwood in its Many Forms

Wearing a sandalwood bracelet or necklace is not the only way to enjoy the benefits of this widely respected plant. Many cultures prefer grinding the wood into a fine powder or harvesting the tree’s natural oil. You can use Sandalwood powder or oil raw or as an ingredient for many alternative healing products, including:

  • Incense. Sandalwood is a common base ingredient for many incense products used for aromatherapy. Ayurvedic medicine suggests burning Sandalwood to promote restful sleep, subdue aggression, and increase a feeling of peace.
  • Essential oils. You can also apply Sandalwood directly to your skin as an essential oil or use it to create anti-inflammatory face masks. Many traditional healers believe the oil can help reduce wrinkles and soothe sunburn. Burning the oil releases its calming scent and may aid meditation.
  • Cosmetics. Sandalwood is a common ingredient in many cosmetic products, including face creams, soaps, and body scrubs. Using a sandalwood bath soak or soap may help you relax before bed while soothing and moisturising your skin. Studies also suggest that sandalwood may be beneficial for skin lightening and promoting an even skin tone.
