Beauty Secrets of Sandalwood ( Chandan)

Hi friends…. There are many beauty secrets of sandalwood. Today I am sharing 9 Simple Ways to Use Sandalwood for Skin and Face(chandan). Sandalwood is the name of a group of fragrant trees that is found mostly in India, some other countries of south Asia, Indonesia and Australia. This aromatic tree was initially used mostly by perfume makers, a practice that lead to the over harvesting of this otherwise slow-growing tree. Many Ayurvedic, as well as other natural products use sandalwood as a key beauty ingredient. Alternatively, you can also use sandalwood to make your own homemade face packs.
