Therapeutic, Spiritual & Religious Uses. Sandalwood powder is the ground heartwood of the tree, and contains over 6% of the valuable sandalwood oil. Our sandalwood powder is mid-brown in colour, and has the same anti-microbial and antiseptic qualities of the oil. It is used in face masks, muds and peeling wraps for its moistening, astringent and balancing qualities, as well as treatments for skin complaints such as acne, blackheads and the like. Read some reviews of sandalwood powder, noting the underlying advice is to buy good quality powder from a reputable supplier.
It is also used for religious purposes, for mixing pastes as well for burning. Our powder burns readily, with a wonderful aroma and plenty of smoke.
