Sandalwood As Alternative Medicine

Sandalwood As Alternative Medicine

Sandalwood is used in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicines as an alternative medicine to treat skin disorders, stomach pains, vomiting, sexual dysfunction and sexually transmitted diseases and in both female and male.

  1. It stimulates the growth of white blood cells to boost up the immune system.
  2. It eases tension, insomnia, anxiety, grief and stress.
  3. It is a remedy for acne, oily or dry and chapped skin.
  4. It is often combined with ginger or peppermint to give relief to diarrhea, heartburn, vomiting, dysentery and nausea.
  5. It is a treatment for fungal infections such as thrush and tinea.
  6. It is effective in treating dry coughs, bronchitis, urinary tract infections and sore throat.

Sandalwood is available as powder or oil. To treat digestive complaints it is often blended with rice-water, honey and sugar. The oil is good for bladder inflammation and painful urination. In Ayurvedic medicine the powdered wood is made into a paste to treat fevers and snakebites. The oil can sometimes cause outbreak of dermatitis in people who are highly sensitive. These are the three common forms that sandalwood is used as an alternative medicine.
