How To Get Shining Skin Using Sandalwood Oil
Sandalwood is an expensive oil but a worthwhile investment when one considers its wonderful properties. It is excellent for combating the ravages of aging skin – promoting hydration and moisture.
Sandalwood oil has both a soothing and a moisturising effect and thus it refreshes dehydrated skin. Because of the toning effect that sandalwood oil has, it can be used as an astringent. The oil can also be used to prevent marks and scars on the face and fights a skin condition called eczema (a medical condition wherein patches of skin turn inflamed, with itching and bleeding blisters, sometimes resulting from irritation).
Sandalwood Essential Oil Recipes
For acne or pimples, mix 10 drops of sandalwood essential oil (depending on how sensitive your skin is) with one teaspoon of turmeric powder and one teaspoon of rosewater or spring water. Apply a thin layer of the paste and leave it on for at least thirty minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water and dry gently. You can do this once or twice a day. Pimples should begin to shrink noticeably after only 48 hours.
Calm inflammation, itchiness, or rashes. Mix 10 drops of sandalwood essential oil with one teaspoon of turmeric powder and one teaspoon of lime juice. Apply a thin layer to the affected area and let it sit for 20-30 minutes. Rinse with cool water and pat dry. While redness or swelling may take some time to subside, itchiness should fade quickly.
Dry skin. Sandalwood oil is an excellent moisturizer, and can aid dry skin. Apply a drop or two directly to areas you want to address and massage it in. If you want to cover larger areas, I recommend combining it with jojoba oil. This sandalwood oil will function as an excellent body and massage oil that will leave your skin feeling soft and hydrated.
Bug bite treatment. Mix 5-7 drops of sandalwood essential oil with one teaspoon of turmeric, 10 drops of lavender oil, and just enough water to make it a paste. Apply this to the bug bite as soon as possible to stop itching and reduce swelling.
Uneven tans. Mix 15 drops of virgin coconut oil with 10 drops of jojoba oil and 7-10 drops of sandalwood essential oil. Massage this into overexposed areas. Sandalwood helps break down the pigment that has reached the surface of the skin and will leave you with an a more even skin tone.
