Sandalwood is a class of woods from trees in the genus Santalum. The woods are heavy, yellow, and fine-grained, and unlike many other aromatic woods, they retain their fragrance for decades.
Santalum album, or Indian sandalwood, is a small tropical tree, and is the most commonly known source of sandalwood.
Indian sandalwood is very sacred in the Hindu Ayurveda and is known in Sanskrit as vhandana.
In Hinduism and Ayurveda, sandalwood is thought to bring one closer to the divine. Thus, it is one of the most used holy elements in Hindu and Vedic societies.
