Palo Santo Pure Essential Oil

Our organically crafted Palo Santo Essential Oil is steam distilled from the aged heartwood of the ethically wildcrafted Bursera graveolens tree, growing wild in the mountains of Ecuador.

Palo Santo means “holy wood” or “sacred tree”, as well as Argentine or Paraguay “lignum vitae”.

This sacred tree has been used for centuries for its healing properties and potential to ward off negative energy.

The smoke of Palo Santo wood is traditionally used in spiritual rituals to clear negativity from a person or space, very similar to the use of White Sage in smudging practices. Bursera graveolens comes from the same botanical family (Burseraceae) as Frankencense and Myrrh and is often used to enhance meditative states in the same way as its botanical cousins – encouraging relaxation, calming the nerves and quieting mental chatter.

Palo Santo has an ancient ethno-botanical history and has long been worshipped by the indigenous cultures for its purifying and healing powers. The wood matures over time after the tree has died, developing a chemistry that makes for a very powerful essential oil – it is from wood of this condition that this oil has been distilled.

The resin is driven into the heartwood when the wood dies and matures, developing its unique and powerful chemistry.

Palo Santo essential oil has settling, calming and grounding qualities, thus making it a great ally for maintaining emotional equanimity, as well as a superb oil for spiritual upliftment.

Palo Santo essential oil is considered to have important, complex therapeutic activities, including anti-anxiety, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer effects.

It is a beautiful essential oil to include in formulations intended to support meditation and reflection.

In addition to its popular use in ceremonies and meditation purposes, Palo Santo oil is also excellent for encouraging healthy lung function, especially when dealing with minor coughs, congestion, or asthma.

This essential oil is also recommended for its skin nourishing properties, as well as to help ease unwanted muscle spasms.

Palo Santo has an emotionally uplifting and balancing effect.

Often used for shamanic ritual, it is a valuable tool for meditation, enhancing creativity, and for tasks requiring sustained concentration.

Palo Santo ushers in a sense of calm, grounding and sets us up for emotional stability and a connection to the spiritual world and our mother earth.

Palo Santo Essential Oil is rich in terpenes such as limonene and α-terpineol.

Many of the health benefits come from the limonene that is extracted from the oil of the Palo Santo tree. It belongs to the group of terpenes that act as antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal and antiseptic agents.

Our favorite way to enjoy palo santo for aromatherapy is adding a few drops of the essential oil to a diffuser.

Another way to reap the benefits of palo santo oil is to add a few drops to some vegetable oil or coconut oil and apply directly to your skin on your wrists, chest, or temples.

You can also purchase a roll on bottle to make application even easier.

Or simply dilute some palo santo oil with water in a spray bottle and spritz your room or bed linens.
