Sandalwood is indigenous to many Asian & African countries and also grown in Australia, Hawaii. Mysore sandalwood from India being the most expensive and most famous. It’s oil is widely used in perfumery and the wood can be burned for its scent.
The aroma is beautiful: The soft scent of sandalwood is zesty, rich and soft, it’s wonderful but this is a delicate wood. It’s best to warm the wood to release the oil. Burning the wood will mask the scent of the oil with wood smoke. See below 👇👇
How to use? High heat doesn’t bring out the best for this wood. Use on an ashy coal (please wait for coal to form white ash, or even wait longer for lower heat!) And preferably a mica plate.
