Sandalwood beads can also help with relaxation, sleep, and aggression control. A Sandalwood bracelet can help you feel as much positive energy as possible. The sandalwood bracelet is unique. For centuries, the meaning has remained unchanged. 

What is Sandalwood?

One of the most holy trees in the world is the sandalwood tree. It has many magical and spiritual qualities. Since ancient times, people have used the sweet-smelling heartwood of this tree for prayer, meditation, relaxation, healing, protection, cleansing, and even to reach higher states of consciousness.

The smell of this tree’s heartwood (the inside of the trunk) is sacred, like the smells of Agarwood, Palo Santo, and Frankincense resin. The heartwood takes a long time to grow, so it has a strong energy that can be used for spiritual and magical purposes.

The heartwood is dense and can be yellow to reddish brown in color, depending on the type. It is known to keep its strong smell for many years.

What Does Sandalwood Symbolize?


Sandalwood is seen as a symbol of protection in part because the inner trunk (heartwood) of this tree is like leather and can’t be eaten by termites or other insects. Termites usually eat the outer layer (called sapwood) but leave the middle layer (called heartwood) alone. Sandalwood is also said to have a strong energy that can raise your vibration and protect you from negative energy.


This tree’s wood is heavy and has a strong but soothing scent. In addition, unlike other fragrant woods, which lose their scent quickly, sandalwood retains its scent for decades (even after it has been detached from the tree). This is a sign of good health, youth, and even immortality.

Healing & relaxation

Sandalwood can heal the mind, body, and spirit in a deep way. The smell of this wood makes you feel very calm and helps to open and align all of your energy centers, both lower and higher. This is why Sandalwood has been used in many cultures around the world for meditative and reflective practices since ancient times.

Sandalwood is also thought to stimulate the pineal and pituitary glands, which releases negative programming, brings clarity, boosts intuition, understanding, and creative energy, and helps a person connect to a higher level of consciousness.

Good luck & prosperity

Hindus believe that Goddess Lakshmi, who is in charge of wealth and prosperity, lives in the sandalwood tree. In fact, the sandalwood tree is called “Sriganda,” which means “The smell the Goddess loves most.”

Spiritual devotion

Sandalwood has been a sign of spirituality and spiritual devotion since ancient times. This tree’s wood has been used to pray and make offerings to the gods. The wood has also been used to make temples, statues of gods, and other important things used in religious ceremonies. People believe that the cooling properties of the wood open the third eye and crown chakras and help with spirituality and connecting to a higher consciousness. This is why it is a tradition in Hinduism to put sandalwood paste on the forehead, neck, and chest.

Sandalwood incense is often used in worship, rituals, and ceremonies in China, Japan, and Korea, among other places in East Asia.

Benefits of Sandalwood According to Study

According to certain studies, sandalwood provides health benefits. For example, research suggests that sandalwood may help:

  • anti-inflammatory
  • manage anxiety
  • support wound healing
  • guard against skin cancer
  • fight bacteria


Sandalwood may have anti-inflammatory effects in the body by altering cell signaling. There is some evidence that sandalwood may aid in the reduction of inflammation in skin disorders such as psoriasis and atopic dermatitis.[1]


One study of 87 women getting a breast biopsy found that aromatherapy with lavender, sandalwood, and orange-peppermint helped them feel less anxious. [2] Self-reporting was used to find out how anxious they were before aromatherapy and how anxious they were after it.

In another study, 32 people in Vienna, Austria, inhaled lavender and sandalwood oil. The study discovered that after the aromatherapy, the participants’ blood pressure and cortisol levels in their saliva were lower.[3]

Wound healing

Researchers from Germany’s Ruhr-Universität Bochum discovered that skin cells have olfactory receptors for sandalwood. It appeared that activating those receptors promoted skin cell growth.[4]

Skin cancer

According to a study published in the Archives of Biochemistry and Biophysics, a compound found in sandalwood oil may help fight skin cancer. This compound is known as -santalol. According to some studies, this component can help promote cancer cell death.[5]

What Sandalwood Bracelet You Should Look For?

The best sandalwood bracelets are made entirely of sandalwood and contain no artificial wood. Artificial wood can be harmful and pose a number of risks to those who have never worn one before. However, sandalwood bracelets are in short supply, and there is a high demand for genuine/authentic sandalwood bracelets. Contact the owner and ask if it has artificial wood to increase your chances of finding genuine sandalwood bracelets.

Because sandalwood bracelets are so popular, there are many synthetic sandalwood bracelets available. Because sandalwood bracelets are rare and in high demand, the United States is one of the largest importers, so you may find fewer high-quality bracelets around the world.


Sandalwood has been around for a very long time. During that time, many people have used them because they were good for their health. Even though there isn’t much medical evidence, sandalwood bracelets may have many health benefits we don’t know about. It’s been around and used for thousands of years, after all. A lot more research is needed to prove that sandalwood bracelets are good for your health. But the smell is amazing and unlike anything else.
