Sandalwood Bar Soap

Sandalwood Bar Soap


Sandalwood is distilled from the roots and heartwood of trees that take 50 to 80 years to reach full maturity.  In an amazing and lengthy manufacturing process used since ancient times, the mature sandalwood trees are cut down, then left to be eaten by ants, which consume all but the fragrant heartwood and roots.  Every part of the heartwood is used. Including the sawdust. 

The scent, called chandana, is an aromatherapy used to induce a calm and meditative state.  The lasting fragrance only improves with age. According to mythology, sandalwood originally grew only in heaven’s gardens. Temple gates and religious statues are carved from the wood because of this spiritual association and exquisite scent.

Ingredients: Saponified Coconut oil, Palm Oil, Olive Oil, Distilled water, Castor oil, Fragrance oil, Black Walnut powder and flax seed
