Our Sandalwood Chips are sustainably harvested from wild Sandalwood of the native Western Australian Sandalwood species – Santalum spicatum. From Western Australia, the sandalwood is deadwood – that is, Sandalwood that has naturally died and collected from the desert floors of Western Australia. The chips vary in shape and size but are approximately 5 – 8cm in length. They are beautifully aromatic and the benefits are reaped when the chips are burned or placed on a hot plate.
Sandalwood has been used as a holy incense since the beginning of time. Early on, people observed that Sandalwood was never attacked by termites, which may have led to its reputation as a protective wood. The scent is believed to be one of the most pleasing to the gods. It is believed to have cooling and soothing properties, and to direct one’s attention toward the divine realms. It is popular in blended incense and combines well with the sacred resins Frankincense and Myrrh.
Sandalwood oil placed on the forehead aids in focusing the mind. The scent opens the highest spiritual centers and so makes an appropriate incense for rituals, exorcisms, and healings. The powdered wood is strewn to the directions or offered to the fire to bring protection and consecration to any ceremony. Mix it with lavender to enhance contact with the spirit world. Mix it with frankincense for the highest spiritual “octave.” The scents of frankincense and sandalwood have some of the highest vibrations inherent in any plant. They will resonate with aspects of ourselves or with Devic/Angelic beings of the highest order. Rose is another herb held to have that frequency, thus attracting or eliciting the highest spiritual vibrations from within ourselves and the cosmos. Sandalwood has a calming, sedative effect and aids in meditation. In ritual formulas, it is used for purification, consecration, relaxation, and peace.
These incense burners are ideal for heating the Sandalwood Chips.
