Introduction to sandalwood 

Since ancient times, sandalwood has occupied a sacred position in the hearts of Chinese people. In the history of the royal dynasty, the furniture was made of old sandalwood. The emperor's study and bedroom kept burning sandalwood. Breathing sandalwood and sitting on it can increase the aura. Later, it was spread to the people. All business owners would burn sandalwood in the shop to attract money and avoid evil, so that the popularity would be prosperous and the business would be bigger and bigger. Sandalwood is indispensable for Buddhists to use. It can be seen that sandalwood is widely used. 

The origin of sandalwood 

Sandalwood has a long history. It is mentioned in ancient Sanskrit classics and Chinese classics. Sandalwood essential oils have long-standing religious rituals. Many gods and temples are carved with sandalwood. The ancient Egyptians imported sandalwood for medicinal use, antisepsis or burning in religious ceremonies. It was also used for carving works of art. Ancient India's all-round medicine azurveda pointed out that sandalwood has the properties of tonifying, astringent and reducing fever. The utility model relates to a medicinal powder which can be used for treating skin inflammation, abscess and tumor. This usage of skin ulcer treatment was also mentioned in Jibo's "good medicine" paper in 1636. According to Indian Pharmacopoeia, sandalwood is regarded as a sweating agent. It is said that sandalwood mixed with milk can cure abscess - secretion of purulent mucus. 

The ecology of sandalwood 

True sandalwood, native to South Asia, is a semi parasitic tree, especially abundant in the highlands of 600 to 2400 meters in South India. Other species of this genus also grow in Pacific Islands and Australasia. The height of this kind of tree is medium. When the age of tree is 40-50 years, it can reach maturity, about 12-15 meters high. At this time, the perimeter of heartwood is the longest and the oil content is the highest. The fragrant and oily parts are in heartwood and root, while bark and sapwood are tasteless. Sandalwood grows out of seeds that look like small black cherries. It takes 20 days for the seeds of the fruits to germinate, and then the roots of the young trees cling to the nearby trees, shrubs and grasses. In the next seven years, the nutrition of small trees depends on other plants, which will cause the host to die, and then they can grow on their own. After that, it needs fertile soil with good drainage and annual rainfall of at least 75cm. The Indian government controls 75% of the world's total output of sandalwood. When the age of sandalwood is 40-50 years old, and the trunk circumference is 60-62 cm long, the dark brown trunk has a strong smell, especially the part near the ground and the root. Mature trees can produce 200 kg of essential oil in large quantities. The essential oil produced in roots ranged from 6% to 7%, while in heartwood it ranged from 2% to 5%. The sandalwood essential oil is distilled for six months to preserve its proper maturity and aroma. The color changes from pale yellow to yellowish brown, thick and rich, sweet and natural fruit flavour.


The effect of sandalwood 

In 1868, a doctor in Glasgow, England, Dr. Handerson, quoted the successful cases of sandalwood purulent treatment, which attracted the attention of the medical community. French doctors Panas, laber and bordier later confirmed the studies. At that time, in France, patients were given 40 grams of sandalwood capsules five times a day: after 40 minutes of swallowing, the patient's reverse liquid gave off a strong smell of sandalwood. At the beginning of the 20th century, sandalwood was used for the treatment of mucus secretion of chronic bronchitis, and all the contraries (cystitis, bladder infection and inflammation). Sandalwood is also used to treat diarrhea. Sandalwood essential oils are commonly used by Asia and Arabs to treat many diseases. Europe used perfume and soap. It used to play an important role in aromatherapy. When it is used for treatment, it is often mixed with Peruvian balsam or taru balsam, with Melaleuca or chamomile, and applied externally to treat the dermatitis caused by allergy, eczema, abscess and skin dry crack. At the same time, the fragrance of sandalwood also has the effect of calming and helping sleep! Although the use of sandalwood is very wide, the traditional sandalwood ring and powdery sandalwood are easy to cause respiratory discomfort, and also cause indoor air turbidity and lung injury. Accordant plant essential oil aromatherapy is to make sandalwood into essential oil, which is loved by Asians. In the healthy and fresh air, it also sends out the holy breath, so that you can concentrate more, calm your mind, have more wisdom in the way of life, give full play to your potential and create wealth.
