This another aromatic oil, I use this oil in my own home made liquid bathing soap which comprising African black soap, honey, lemon oil and sandal wood oil and its great on the skin and gives a good aroma to the soap.  It is great in regenerating the cells and causing new cells growth.  In this way, dead skin cells and gradually removed and replaced with new cells making you more youthful instead of aging faster.
