Sandalwood is one of the Biblical aromatics and is frequently referred to as “aloes.” It is mentioned in the Old Testament as a beautiful perfume (Psalm 45:8, Proverbs 7:17, Song of Solomon 4:14), and a tree that God planted (Numbers 24:6). In the New Testament, sandalwood is only mentioned once—as one of the fragrances used to embalm Jesus before he was buried (John 19:39).
It would seem that Sandalwood is not only associated with romatic LOVE as we know it, but pure AGAPE love as the enbalming anointing oil of our Bridegroom as well.
Sandalwood smells luxurious and special in every way and I am happy to offer this blend so more can enjoy it's deep and meaningful aroma as well as its vast therapeutic use.
