Hawaiian Sandalwood has long been used to calm the mood and the senses and promote a general feeling of calmness and wellbeing. Sourced from Hawaii, doTERRA’s Hawaiian Sandalwood has a rich, woody, sweet aroma that is perfect for massages and aromatherapy. It is also extremely nourishing for the skin and can be used to help clear acne and other blemishes or even to reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
For a calm and relaxing nights sleep, try rubbing Hawaiian Sandalwood into your neck and shoulders or diffusing it into the room. This oil can also be added to your bath, just a few drops will do, or to your doTERRA Hand and Body Lotion for some extra soothing.
