Sandalwood Products

This is probably the most important tree to the Indian sub-continent. Used in many different products as well as for religious purposes has made the East Indian variety of Sandalwood highly prized and sought after. Indigo Herbs has found a genuine source of this lovely smelling incense that is guaranteed pure and without any bulking agents. Our Sandalwood (Yellow) Incense Powder can be used to mix with other incenses or just on its own for a supremely luxurious aroma of mysterious India.

For at least 5,000 years India has been the leader in producing Sandalwood. Culturally Sandalwood is of major economic importance to India with many cosmetics, perfumes and soap products using sandalwood as an added aroma. It is also used as a topical treatment for complaints of the skin with a cooling action that relieves irritation. Because of its sacredness the Santalum album tree is used to make religious carvings with gaining popularity making this wood the second most expensive in the world. Believed to be an aroma that brings one closer to the divine, the incense is burnt in temples not only to purify the space but also as a conduit to be closer to the divinity represented there. The Sanskrit for Sandalwood is ‘Chandanam’; in this context the wood is worked into a paste and applied to the forehead as a means of cooling the thoughts and to provide a more definitive passage to a peaceful inner space.

Every part of the Sandalwood tree has a use with an outer sapwood surrounding an inner core or heartwood that is prized as being used in making incense and oil. The outer wood is used to make carvings and furniture. Because all the facets of this tree are in high demand the distribution and felling of Sandalwood trees is now regulated by the Indian Government. If left to grow the Santalum album can reach up to 40-50 feet and have a very distinctive eye shaped leaf that’s dark green in colour. Flowers are usually red and very small. The mature bark turns a red colour with age and when the whole tree is cut then it is very noticeable where the sapwood ends and the expensive heartwood begins.

At Indigo Herbs we are passionate about premium quality botanicals. Explore the tabs on this page to find out more about the quality, manufacture and suggested use of this incense. At Indigo Herbs we are committed to empowering optimum health and nutrition and assisting you to take responsibility for your own health and wellbeing, by having access to many of natures healing botanicals.

Natural incense resins are simple and easy to use. The resins, dried leaves and woods need to be burnt to release their aromatic smoke. This smoke is a 100% pure and a great natural way to perfume a room. The resin is burnt on small charcoal disks, the disks need to be set in a heat resistant container for safety purposes. We recommend a purpose made incense burner that is made from brass.

The charcoal disk is lit and as it smoulders and turns grey the natural incense resins can be added. Additional incense can be added until the charcoal has burnt down. This incense experience is aromatic, heady and sensual. Why not bring out your inner perfume maker and enjoy blending different resins together to create the ideal aroma for an occasion. For full instructions go to our How to blend and use Incense page.

1. Take a lighter or match to a Charcoal disk, and when it is fully alight then set it safely into a charcoal disk holder, or heat resistant receptacle.

2. When the charcoal disk has turned grey and ash like, then add a couple of tears of plant resin, powder, bark or chips.

3. This plant matter will begin to smolder and release an aromatic smoke.

4. Set the lid on the charcoal burner, and enjoy the sensual experience of the aroma pervading the room.

5. Add more incense when required.  

  • Produced to GMP standards.
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.
  • 100% pure botanical ingredients, absolutely nothing added.

Manufacture Process

Resin is tapped from a tree. This is done by scraping the bark and allowing the resins to bleed out and harden. These hardened resins are called tears.

Tapping is done 2 to 3 times a year with the final taps producing the best tears due to their higher aromatic chemical content.

I adore Indigo Herbs
I adore Indigo Herbs! I'm a hedge witch and Doula and use lots of herbal goodies. I can buy almost everything I need (that I can't find by foraging) and to my great delight, cacao paste at a fabulous price, which I use medicinally. I needed to buy horseradish root and turmeric root recently to make fire cider and I was disappointed that IH don't supply things like this. If you read this IH perhaps you could consider it? Thank you.
