Post by jancancook on Tue Feb 15, 2011 7:34 am

Sandalwood (Kannada: ಶ್ರೀಗಂಧ śrīgaṃdha, Hindi: चंदन chandan, Urdu: صندل sandal, Tamil: சந்தனம், Sinhala: සුදු හඳුන් ) is the name of a class of fragrant woods. These woods are yielded by trees in the genus Santalum which are often used for the essential oil they contain. The wood is heavy and yellow in color as well as fine-grained, and unlike many other aromatic woods it retains its fragrance for decades. The sandalwood fragrance is very distinctive and is used in countless applications. Sandalwood has been valued and treasured for many years for its fragrance, carving, medical, and religious qualities.
