Pure WA Sandalwood Deadwood Essential Oil – Santalum spicatum Sandalwood grown in the desert regions of Western Australia has been used by the Aboriginal peoples for thousands of years. Although the oil was not steam distilled like it is today, the benefits of this unique tree were used to provide therapeutic comfort from its anti microbial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. The uses were in poultices, masks to insect repellents by pounding the sticks and leaves into a powder and applying to the skin, or burning creating a light smoke which not only repelled insects but provided a beautiful aroma which is special to the Sandalwood species.
