Botanical Name: Bursera Graveolens

Origin: Manabi, Ecuador

Bursera Graveolens, known in Spanish as Palo Santo, is a wild tree native to coastal South America. Belonging to the same family as copal, myrrh, and frankincense, Palo Santo translates to "Holy Wood." It was renowned among Incan cultures and is now traditionally used by present-day shamans and healers for its purification attributes. When burned, the smoke is believed to provide healing and therapeutic energies, giving you a more profound connection to your being.

Common Uses:

  • When placed in distilled water or an atomizer bottle, Palo Santo creates a fresh smoke that helps keep away mosquitoes and other flying insects.
  • Palo Santo is often used to create a pleasant atmosphere and is believed to enhance meditation, concentration, and creativity.
  • Palo Santo is traditionally used for its aromatic qualities and is incorporated into massage work to promote calm.

    Distillation:

    This essential oil is sustainably extracted through a process known as steam distillation. No chemical solvents are involved. The oil is first extracted by passing a vapor stream through the dry wood, opening its oil gland, and allowing the essential oil to mix with the steam. Next, the oil is passed through a cooling system to obtain condensation through the plant’s natural essence.
