Much like its native Hawaii, hawaiian sandalwood produces a calming effect, as it soothes skin and promotes emotional well-being by dissipating tense feelings.* 

From a renewable source in Hawaii, doTERRA’s amazing sandalwood essential oil delivers a variety of benefits, including smoothing skin and enhancing moods. With thousands of years of documented use, this oil has a high value to many users. Hawaiian sandalwood has a rich, sweet, woody aroma that instills calmness and well-being, making it a perfect oil to incorporate into massage or aromatherapy. Sandalwood is very soothing and beneficial to the skin, making it highly sought after in body and skin care products. Hawaiian sandalwood can reduce the appearance of skin imperfections while providing an overall youthful-looking complexion. In addition to being soothing and beneficial to the skin, hawaiian sandalwood provides these same effects to mood, helping to lessen tension and promote emotional well-being.
