Sandalwoods are wild fragrant trees with tenacious leaves that grow in India’s Mysore state. Its wood was often used in building temples that to this day have kept its penetrating scent. Sandalwood oil has been used as a remedy for ailments for over four thousand years, and is a common fixative in perfumery.

It is present in Hindu and Buddhist rituals, the former often making the bindi dot out of its paste, the later turning it into incense. In Chinese medicine, sandalwood increases longevity, and builds confidence and determination.
