The snippet below quickly sums up a reputation for sandalwood:
Regular use of the antibacterial Sandalwood powder helps in fighting acne-causing bacteria, exfoliates the skin, soothes sunburn, removes suntan and also reduces signs of ageing such as dry skin and wrinkles. The smell of sandalwood also immediately leads to your mood becoming all the more pleasant.

The article agrees with the skin benefit properties that others report and the above article should be read in full.
While we cannot in anyway testify that the reputation of sandlewood is deserved or even true, we can state that it is included in Himalayan Long Life Botanicals Super Superfood Gold.
But do not take this superfood if you are ill. The sandalwood in it is in very small quantities. What superfood is for, is good health and longevity and the maintenance thereof.
This herb is extraordinarily expensive and used in very small amounts in the Super Superfood Gold. Sandalwood is the second most expensive wood in the world.
For more information we suggest you read any of the many articles extolling the benefits of sandalwood.
