Sandalwood has long been revered in Ayurveda for its healing and spiritual properties. There are many "sandalwood" products on the market that use synthetic synthetic oil or with oil extracted with benzene or hexane - toxic substances. These products will not give the effects of real Sandalwood.
Our toxin free soap was formulated by my teacher Vaidya Mishra using both white and red Sandalwood. Both have their own unique qualites:
Sandalwood in Sanskrit is called Chandanam. In the Vedas (the ancient Indian texts from which all the Vedic Science is derived), the sound A is described as the first vibration of formless Pure Consciousness as it manifests itself as form. Also, in Sanskrit there is a term called Nama Rupa which means Name and Form. The Vedic Sounds of Sanskrit are the sounds which constitute the subtlest vibration of the form they represent. So, the Name is the vibration of the Form. Vaidya Mishra said this was especially true for White Sandalwood. The name chAndAnAm reflects the intensity of the A vibration present in this tree. Thus, White Sandalwood is used in all the Vedic Rituals due to its divine nature.
White Sandalwood is full of the Soma (lunar) vibration. Soma gives rise Kapha Dosha in the body. Kapha is the structural material of the body such as muscle, fat, bone etc. Thus, plants high in Soma usually give a lot of heaviness in their effect. White Sandalwood is unique because it is light.
White Sandalwood is very cooling and is used in condition when there is a lot of inflammation in the body such as Auto Immune Disease
Some of the Prabhavas (special Pranic effects) are:
Aladhanam - gives bliss
Dhramhara - relieves fatigue without a known cause
Shoshanahara - relieves High Vata soaking essences of Dhatu - give dryness
Vishahara - relieves Ama and Gar Visha - burning pain and heat
Shleshmahara - Relieves Shleshma stuck when high Vata and Pitta
Trishnahara -relieves deep thirst
Red Sandalwood is similar to White Sandalwood but not as strong. It does not contain as much Soma as the White Sandalwood and it is heavier in nature.
It is used for nausea and vomiting, excessive thirst and any Pitta aggravation in the blood due to Ama Visha (hot acidic toxins).
It has the Prabhavas (special Pranic effects) of Vrisha (enhancing Shukra Dhatu the Vital Fluid or Ovum or Sperm) and Chakchuksya (enchancing health and longevity of the eyes).
