In ancient Buddhist tradition and culture, Sandalwood has been celebrated and used as the optimal meditation tool for thousands of years. It is considered a sacred plant that is respected and honored more than most in the Eastern world and is primarily grown in Southeast Asia and India.
It has a stimulating effect on the pineal and pituitary glands, as well as the third eye chakra which clears the mind, bringing calmness to the entire being, while promoting inner peace and feelings of greater unity. It is believed to stimulate sensuality, increase a sense of awareness, invoke tranquility, awaken the divine thoughts within and promote profound relaxation.
It is considered to have a very high vibration and has a calming, purifying and relaxing effect. Since it originated from a living thing, it connects you to the earth and community. It grounds and plants your roots enhancing trust and self- identity. It also is believed to promote energy and enthusiasm; increasing a person's self-esteem and zest for life.
