Red Sandalwood (Pterocarpus Soyauxii)
Sandalwood, also known as saunders wood or ruby red, is a tightly regulated red-colored wood with medicinal advantages that is unique and endemic to India and can only be found in the southern regions of the Eastern Ghats. It has been used for over 4,000 years. This sandalwood species (Pterocarpus soyauxii) is noted for its therapeutic benefits rather than its capacity to produce oil.
Red Sandalwood chips combine well with other resin and plant-based incenses, imparting a pleasant and mild woodsy scent. Traditionally used for blessing, vibration boosting, meditation, and protection. This is a one-of-a-kind incense, but don't stop there. Infuse it into your bath, or add color to your soaps, bath bombs, or potpourri.
Or use it to flavor your favorite alcoholic drink!
Red sandalwood is diuretic and drying, making it useful for wounds, diarrhea, and coughs. Red sandalwood is used for a variety of ailments, including cancer, wounds, digestive issues, fluid retention, and more, but there is no scientific proof to back up these claims.
1-3 teaspoons of loose tea (or 3g up to 3 times) daily. If more than one herbal mixture is consumed at the same period of time, reduce the amount of tea accordingly.
When herbs are used for a long period of time, it is suggested to consume a herbal remedy with a ratio of 3 to 1. For example, if you choose to take it for 3 weeks, have a one-week pause, if it is taken for a 30-day period, have a 10-day pause, etc. That does not apply to herbs and fruits that have a laxative effect.
◉ Herbs and botanicals should be stored in airtight glass containers -in a cool, dark, and dry area- to preserve their flavor and properties.
◉ Before adding a new herbal remedy or supplement to your daily routine, you should consult with a medical doctor or holistic health practitioner.
