Sandalwood (Hawaiian) Santalum paniculatum
Can be used aromatically, topically, internally and applied neat
Anything that says Hawaii on it, I'm sold. My husband and I bounced around the Hawaiian islands on our honeymoon and I have been fantasizing a trip back ever since 🏴🏴🏴
On our honeymoon, we had the most incredible spa treatment at the Four Seasons Hualalai. It started with a body scrub, followed by a mask, a rinse, an essential oil bath, and a massage. Yes, I'm serious! Out of curiosity I looked up our spa service description and found,
"the maile fragrance is delicately grassy with subtle notes of sandalwood evoking the sweet, earthy aroma of the ancient Hawaiian rainforests. It is an aromatic exfoliating experience that will invigorate, brighten and moisturize your skin."
At the time, I didn't think much about why the Four Seasons incorporated the essential oils used in our treatment. Now, it all makes sense. Hawaiian Sandalwood is the perfect essential oil for spa services.
