Sandalwood May Support Healthy Cell Renewal The human body is composed of over 37 trillion cells. Each of these cells has a certain lifespan and will eventually die and be replaced by a new cell. This is a normal, natural process that facilitates the renewal of the body. The rate at which cells divide and die (apoptosis) is an important factor in the health of the body. A review article written by researchers at South Dakota State University and published in June 2015 explores the ability of Sandalwood oil to help maintain normal cell division and apoptosis in the body.* Sandalwood oil is truly a remarkable oil!
Therapeutically, Sandalwood is most often used for healthy skin, the nervous system, and muscles and bones. It's also high in sesquiterpenes, a naturally occurring chemical compound found in certain essential oils, known for having a positive impact on health and wellness, particular in regards to the brain. It is one of the oils with the capability of passing the blood brain barrier, a necessary component to battling brain disease. But it's probably the emotional wellness and aromatic influence that is more widely known.
