Palo Santo Wood
Available as incense, essential oil, vibrational spray and of course wood
Palo Santo literally means Holly or Sacred Wood in Spanish. Palo Santo is a tree that grows in South America and it is related to Frankincense, Myrrh and Copal. It has long been used by Shamans for cleansing and healing. Palo Santo is most commonly sold as pieces of wood which are burned. We also carry it in incense, essential oil and vibrational sprays.
The wood of the tree is sustainably harvested and in some countries (e.g. Ecuador) it is against the law to cut down Palo Santo trees and the harvest of deadwood is limited. The beneficial oils found in the wood are only available in dead trees and fallen branches. The oils slowly mature in the wood as it rests over several years and then are harvested for use. Many believe the longer the tree has rested the more powerful the benefits of the oil.
