This is a very cute mini acorn shaped box made out of Indian Sandalwood (Santalum album) with Hawaiian Hala (Pandanus chamissonis) cap. This is the true Indian Sandalwood from which incense and perfume were made. The fragrant wood is often used to make sacred objects and intricate carvings, or burnt to release the aroma for religious offering and aromatherapy. The fragrant of this species persists for a long time. I have been looking for a source of this wood for a while, glad I found some. This is a acorn for your sniffing pleasure. The Pandanus cap adds visual interest to this small gem. I really like this one!
This acorn is great to wear as memorial keepsake pendant. I am not sure what else you can hold with this tiny acorn, maybe just a small daily pill. The screw-on cap ensures that your content is secured. Good for any tiny things you want to keep near and dear, or have access to on the go...
Through the ages, acorns have been given for luck, prosperity and as a symbol of nature's abundance. This little acorn is a unique gift.
