Culture of Sandalwood
Sandalwood is well known as "the king of wood" very early. In Ming and Qing Dynasties, sandalwood was valued by the royal family because of its excellent wood quality and rarity. The emperors asked the skillful craftsmen all through China to make sandalwood furniture and decorations regardless of space. These things were very precious at that time, and now they are more rare. At the same time, the red sandalwood wood has a very high medicinal value. It is recorded in “Compendium of Materia Medica” that the sandalwood has the effect of meditation and activating blood circulation.
