What Is Sandalwood?


Sandalwood is a beautiful brownish-blond bead with an elegant balance of Earth tones, crafted from real wood. It generally helps stimulate the base Chakra and enhances trust, identity, and life force. 

In addition, Sandalwood is used in both Tibetan and Hindu religions as an instrument of prayer and meditation through the repetition of a mantra. The term sandalwood means “rosary,” which is a practical tool for prayer and, at the same time, full of symbolism.

Moreover, Sandalwood is a virtual gold mine for anyone looking to take good care of themselves and their health. There are numerous stone, oil, and even food products made from sandalwood that people can use to improve the way they live. No matter what you're looking for and how you choose to use sandalwood, it can only enhance your life in one way significantly.

In Feng Shui, Sandalwood represents the wood element.

History of Sandalwood


Sandalwood has been used for over 80,000 years, with traces of its use found in mining tools from the Paleolithic era. Sandalwood was often dismantled and used in ancient Assyria and ancient Etruria. During the Middle Ages, Sandalwood was found in great abundance in the Thuringian Forest region of Germany. It was then spread worldwide through trading and importing, mainly to Brazil. 

Sandalwood was once called mirror stone or specularite. The name is based on the metallic luster of the mineral. By polishing the wood, it can be so high quality that in antiquity, Sandalwood was already used as a mirror.

At the same time, in the Babylonian culture, people believed that Sandalwood would bring them luck. While in Asian cultures, Sandalwood is often used to ward off evil spirits as it is thought that Sandalwood can protect one from the evil eye.

In addition, Ancient Egyptians placed Sandalwood in coffins to help the deceased make their way into the afterlife, but they also used the mineral for jewelry and craft objects.

Furthermore, Sandalwood is believed to have been named after the reddish-brown color of its resin, similar to blood, and its occurrence on Earth. Therefore, Greeks concluded that this stone is the blood of the Earth.

Benefits of Sandalwood


Sandalwood is a powerful tool that has been used for thousands of years and it has a natural distinct scent. They are a source of focus and inner wisdom. They help you clear your emotions and dispel negativity, which can be incredibly beneficial when manifesting what you desire, dream, or needs to heal.

Moreover, Sandalwood has been used for centuries in many cultures to purify the air, remove negative energy, and bring peace and clarity into someone's life. This is because it is believed that Sandalwood absorbs negativity while releasing positive energy back into the environment around us. 

In addition to the benefits of Sandalwood, they are also used in healing rituals to ward off evil spirits and negative energy. They're a great way to keep your home feeling fresh and clean. They can also help with wound healing by clearing out the negative energy that can hold wounds open. Furthermore, Sandalwood dissolves magnetic blocks around us and frees us from many radiations.

Sandalwood is excellent for people who have weak fire, weak wood, and strong metal day masters because it regulates and balances them by giving them the blessing of growth, wisdom, and motivation.

Overall, they are great for anyone who wants to relax their mind and body, but they're especially great for people who have trouble sleeping or experience anxiety or other mental health issues. The calming effects of sandalwood stones will help you get the rest you need so that you're ready for whatever tomorrow brings.
