Sandalwood is a fragrant wood that comes from Australia and India. Unlike other fragrant woods, sandalwood can retain its fragrance for many years. In fact, it can last for several decades if it’s properly stored. It is a popular source of essential oil that has a bright and fresh smell. But aside from extracting essential oil from it, the wood itself can also be used.
Sandalwood is popularly used in the present time as an incense. When you burn sandalwood, it will produce a very strong and pleasant aroma, which makes it an ideal wood for incense. Using it as an incense has just recently become popular all over the world, but did you know that it has been used in that manner for thousands of years? It has been long recognized by the Eastern culture and is often used in religious ceremonies.
