What is Australian Sandalwood Seed Oil
For thousands of years, Australian Aboriginals recognized the benefits of the Australian Sandalwood tree. Used extensively in ceremonial burnings and carvings the seed kernel was used as a food and a traditional medicine for skin and internal afflictions. Elders passed down this ancient knowledge of the Sandalwood seed kernel as a remedy for sore joints, to heal sores, skin lesions, and burns. Traditional healers recommend rubbing the crushed kernel on the body to provide overall protection from the harsh Australian environment. Rich in one of the rarest fatty acids found in the plant kingdom, ximenynic acid, this seed oil contributes to several bioactivities including anti-inflammatory and vasodilatation. Sandalwood seed oil has both ximenynic and oleic acids but with the characteristics of carrier oil, but with much more to offer. Oleic acid is found in much greater quantities in Sandalwood Seed oil than other more widely used nuts, such as almond oil.
Research has identified the following pharmacological properties of Ximenynic acid:
- Potent anti-inflammatory agent.
- Increase micro-circulation in skin.
- Micro-vascular constriction to reduce varicose veins and cellulitis.
- Reduce hair loss.
- Reduce sebum secretion (oily skin).
- Reduce fat deposition under skin (Adipose tissue).
