The sacred paste of sandalwood worn by Hindus on their forehead is an effective antiseptic and is used for treating urinary infections. It is not a surprise that sandalwood oil has been approved by Germany’s Commission E to be used with other therapies for treating bladder infections.

         

Sandalwood is liked and hailed as sacred for its lovely fragrance. Being one of the oldest incense materials, Hinduism has been using sandalwood in many rituals and ceremonies for thousands of years. Hindu people normally wear sandalwood paste on their forehead as a mark of devotion. It is known for its exquisite scent and spiritual association. Sandalwood is used as an incense in Buddhist offerings.

Mythological stories say that sandalwood originally was growing only in the heavenly gardens. Hinduism believes that sandalwood scent would transform one’s desires and maintain personal alertness in meditation. Sandalwood is supposed to keep the body and the mind cool and calm.

Medical benefits of sandalwood

2) Traditionally, sandalwood has been used in Ayurveda to treat gonorrhea. Traditional Chinese Medical system also has been using it for gonorrhea, vomiting and stomach problems.

Sandalwood for urinary infections

1) Germany’s Commission E has recently suggested use of sandalwood oil for the treatment of urinary tract infections. It has stated that it has an antiseptic property to act against bacteria in the urinary tract.

2) Ayurveda has been using sandalwood paste for stopping the burning sensation at urination. It is suggested that sandalwood paste mixed in tender coconut water or lemon juice and sugar can be taken.

3) It is also used to stop leukorrhea, the whitish or yellowish vaginal discharge. Equal quantity of sandalwood and curcumin, mixed in water of tender coconut, can be drunk twice a day to heal leukorrhea. A decoction of sandalwood root with sugar candy is also suggested for this.

4) Sandalwood oil is recommended as the best home remedy for bladder infection. Application of 2 or 3 drops of sandalwood oil at the onset of bladder infection is said to relieve the pain and bleeding caused due to bladder infection.

5) Recent studies have shown that sandalwood slows down the growth of herpes virus. But it is only in the preliminary investigation study of the conventional researchers.
