Santalum Spicatum is also a fantastic oil to use on the skin for different types of skin issues. If your skin is highly sensitive and you suffer from inflammation or dehydration, this is a great essential oil to add to your regimen. Its hydrating and antiseptic qualities will help provide the skin with the necessary elements it needs for healing. Restoring your skin to a more balanced state can be incredibly tiresome and difficult. What’s great about this oil is that it similarly helps those who struggle with oily skin as well because of its mild astringent qualities.
Acacia acuminata is a preferred host of the root hemiparasitic tree, Santalum spicatum (sandalwood). Comparison between nutrient content of adult trees of sandalwood and results for an earlier study of the mistletoe, Amyema preissii , on the same host species, A. acuminata , showed similar high levels of K and Na and low levels of Zn in both parasites compared with the host plants. Differences in K, Ca, N and Cu levels between parasitized and uninfected Acacias imply that the host plant contributes to the nutrition of sandalwood.
