The Sandalwood Effect – 5 Ways Sandalwood Oil Can Help Your Skin

Do you feel as if you’re getting older? Is your skin wrinkling more and more each year? Or perhaps you have sensitive skin? Do you have pimples and acne that are bothering you?

If the answer to any of the questions above is yes, then you will want to read on.

You are about to learn about a totally natural way to clear your skin, make it look younger and finally get rid of those annoying acne.


The answer to all those pesky skin problems is – sandalwood oil. Let’s go step by step and see why sandalwood oil is the best natural product for your skin:

1. Anti-tanning Property of Sandalwood

Tanning can go from a dreamy tan to a severe sunburn in a matter of minutes. Not only that, you can end up with a tan that is a few shades darker than what you initially wanted. But fear not, an application of sandalwood oil on the areas that were over-tanned or sunburned will help in healing the burns and it will clear your skin, adding a healthy glow and a nice tan.

The best way to use the anti-tanning property of sandalwood oil is to mix it with almonds and make a paste out of it. Then apply the paste to the burned or over-tanned areas.

2. Anti-aging Property of Sandalwood

Sandalwood is one of the best natural product when it comes to giving a youthful look to your skin. The antioxidants which are contained in sandalwood eliminates the causes of wrinkles, improve your circulation and remove the toxins from your skin. Not only that, but it also tightens your skin, making it look younger.

Try mixing the sandalwood powder with rose water. Make a mask for your face and then apply it to your face. The combination of sandalwood and rose water is one of the best when it comes to giving your skin that youthful look.

3. Skin Softening Effect

Do you know Sandalwood can make your skin feel as if it is a baby’s skin? If you use massage oil, I advise you to replace it with sandalwood. You can even mix it with your existing massage oil.

4. Pimple and Acne Treatment

Sandalwood is used to clear your pores too. It actually works great against any type of skin eruption, whether be it acne, pimples, blackheads or any other. Its properties prevent bacteria inhibition on your skin, thus preventing pimples and acne.

A mask made of sandalwood and rose water works best in these situations too.

Stop buying those expensive creams that do you no good. We’ve all gone through puberty, it’s tough, but this is a natural way to get rid of these problems.

5. Cooling Skin From Hot Summer

Remember when you were a kid and you were going on a summer vacation with your parents? Do you remember that burning feeling when you get home from the beach and you sit for some period of time before you try to move? I sure know I do. Well, as it turns out, sandalwood could have prevented all those years of unpleasant burning feelings.

Sandalwood has a cooling effect on our skin. It helps with burns too. Applying sandalwood oil to the areas where your body was overexposed to the heat will help your skin to feel cooler, thus relieving you from that really unpleasant feeling.

The best way to use the sandalwood oil, in this case, is, again, massaging. Just rub the oil on your skin, and massage it a bit. You will start feeling the results immediately.

If you are tired of doctors constantly prescribing you some expensive creams to treat sunburn, try sandalwood. It can definitely help sunburn and it’s all natural so you don’t have to worry about using it. Be aware, though, that sandalwood essential oils should be diluted with a carrier oil like almond oil, jojoba oil, or grapeseed oil.

Applying chemicals to it your skin only makes it worse. Sandalwood oil is one of the best remedies for your skin, with so many benefits. Plus, it is 100% natural.

I suggest you purchase both sandalwood oil and sandalwood powder, as sandalwood powder proves more useful when it comes to making face masks.
