    When I smell Sandalwood oil, I feel my stomach getting activated.

    To be honest, not really. I've taken really deep inhalations and felt a bit light headed from that, but I think that happens when just doing it to breathe and not to smell.

    Am looking forward to trying Agar Aura's Royal Maluku to see if it gives me the 'mind buzz' everyone's raving about. I'll be honest, I'm doubting it will

    Sandalwood I feel induces deep breathing, calm. Mainly due to psychological associations with meditation, but maybe due to oil chemistry. Who knows...?

    The only thing that really induces something perceptible for me is frankincense.. Feel light headed in a fumigated room. As for Oud and Sandalwood oil/wood, just pleasurable sensations from the scent itself and perhaps a mild state of more alertness repelling to some extent the onset of sleep.

    A swipe of sandalwood and I sleep deeper, works all the time. It's not only meditative and breath deepening, more like a very mild sedative that acts on my body. So yeah, I definitely "feel" sandalwood subconsciously, and I really like that. It's amazing.

    Haven't had that with oud oils through, apart from appreciation and joy for their aroma. I do feel a dry throat when heating chips on electrical burner, maybe because of me burying the nose in the fume:Roflmao:
