Sandalwood has a stimulating effect on the pineal and pituitary glands, as well as the third eye chakra. This is why so many Hindus use it as a paste on their forehead above the ‘third eye’ during times of worship. It is considered a sacred plant that is respected and honored more than most in the Eastern world, and is perhaps the most widely used incense material for accompanying meditation in many different religions and spiritual practices.
Sandalwood is known for clearing the mind and bringing calmness to the entire being, while promoting inner peace and feelings of greater unity.
As incense, it’s used to accompany prayer and help connect one to the great mysteries of life. Sandalwood has been burned in Buddhist, Hindu, Taoist, Sufi, and many other spiritual practices to help strengthen and enhance one’s spiritual essence. In meditation, Sandalwood helps get people out of their minds and into a space of heart and spirit. It connects one to the divine, not in an out of body or otherworldly sense, but through opening one to the realization of the simple divinity of life itself.
PLEASE NOTE: This Sandalwood is pure, natural powder with no added fragrance oil of any kind. Natural Sandalwood has very little scent and it is only after oil is added, does it smell like the traditional "incense".
You will receive a 1/2 ounce packet of this powder.
