Sandalwood is a class of woods from trees known as Santalum which thrives in certain countries such as Hawaii, India and Nepal. Unlike many aromatic woods, they retain their fragrance for decades and is the second most expensive wood in the world. Used in religious ceremonies in hinduism in honor of the Deity Shiva, it is also used in the making of the "Third Eye". The fragrance is believed to be capable of transforming our desires during meditation. It is also used in traditional medecine to treat anxiety.
