Usage Guidelines

  • Common Uses: Widely incorporated in aromatherapy, body care products, candles, hair care, and cold process and melt and pour soap making.
  • Directions: In aromatherapy, add a few drops to the diffuser. For soap making, include approximately 1-3% of the total weight during the cold process or melt and pour phases. In candle making, adhere to fragrance load guidelines. Always consult specific guidelines for each essential oil and product type, considering variations in usage rates, compatibility, and potential reactions.
  • Blends Well With: Sandalwood Essential Oil harmonizes seamlessly with other essential oils, including black pepper, clove, lavender, rosewood, geranium, patchouli, vetiver, myrrh, and jasmine.
  • Precautions: Essential Oils are potent essences from plants and should be diluted before skin application to avoid irritation. Internal use is not recommended. Consult with a doctor or certified aromatherapist if you have health concerns.
