    Default Sandalwood oil cures Rosacea

    Last week in the UK Times newspaper a girl wrote about her Rosacea. This Saturday in the 'Feedback' section someone has written in to say:

    "... I suffered it (Rosacea) some years ago. My GP told me there was no total cure. Months later when I was in Sri Lanka, a Western and Ayurvedic-trained physician told me that natural sandalwood oil would cure it for ever. I massaged a few drops into the skin each day and last thing at night and the symptoms started to improve within a few days. After three months they had gone entirely and have never come back."

    My goodness. A miracle cure maybe?

    I'm wondering that too.

    A word of caution .... sandalwood oil can possibly cause photosensitivity in some individuals.

    Its a tricky one. Oils help some and make others worse. I've tried jojoba and emu, but might as well try this too.

    Good find. I've just ordered some - it should be good for my daughter's eczema too.

    Also, "rosacea" and "cure" should not be used in the same sentence unless you are talking about future

    Please update us how this oil works for you.

    Sandalwood can cause allergic reactions/dermatitis. Pasted below is the ingredient definition for sandalwood oil from cosmeticscop.com (Paula Begoun).


    sandalwood oil. Fragrant oil that can cause skin irritation or allergic reactions (Source: American Journal of Contact Dermatitis, June 1996, pages 7783). There is one animal study showing it to have antitumor properties (Source: European Journal of Cancer Prevention, October 1999, pages 449455).
