GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOTV) – Skin is a delicate organ and it should be treated with great care. I like to avoid over the counter creams and lotions, with their harsh and opt for natural solutions instead. Sandalwood has been used for centuries now for natural skin care. It can help with anything from small cuts or wounds to general improvement of texture and appearance of your skin. As it is a natural substance, you can use sandalwood without fear of side effects.
Here are some benefits of sandalwood for skin:
- Clear complexion
- Soothe sunburn
- Skin softening
- Itch relief
- Prickly heat
Here is an easy and inexpensive recipe for a DIY home facial treatment:
Make a paste by mixing 1 tsp of sandalwood powder with ½ tsp of turmeric powder and 1 TBSP of rose water. Apply a coat of this paste on your face and keep for about 20 minutes and then wash it off with cool water.
