Correspondences of Sandalwood

Sandalwood corresponds to the Moon and Water. While it may seem strange to put a dry desert tree in the elemental category of Water, the assignment harkens back to the ancient Indian practice of Ayurveda. Ayurvedic medicine classifies Sandalwood as cooling, aphrodisiac, and anti-inflammatory—all Watery traits in Western esotericism.

The Lunar association comes from Sandalwood’s pale colour and reputation as a meditative aid. Sandalwood trees are also semi-parasitic. It does make some of its food from photosynthesis, but also lives in the shadow of its hosts. (Very appropriate for a Lunar plant). Some varieties have white flowers, too.

Somewhat uniquely among magickal plants, Sandalwood corresponds to both the Third Eye chakra and the Root chakra. In Hindu tradition, there are divine Sandalwood trees that perfume the heavens, and also terrestrial Sandalwood. Hermetic magicians might say that Sandalwood links the Above and the Below.

Spells and Formulas with Sandalwood

Sandalwood is said to help make wishes come true. Write your petition on a Sandalwood chip, then burn it to release your intention.

In American folk magick, the wood chips are added to mojo bags for safety, security, and peace of mind.

Scatter Sandalwood powder around the house to remove negativity.

Sandalwood pairs well with other traditional herbs, oils and incenses: A blend of Sandalwood and Frankincense is used for consecrating ritual tools. The same formula is supposed to be very inviting to angels. Mix Sandalwood with Lavender to call good spirits, or with Jasmine for peaceful dreams. A blend of Sandalwood and Acacia (one of its host plants) is said to boosts psychic powers.
