Description:  This unique oil comes from the dry tropical forests of Ecuador.  Palo santo is Spanish for “holy wood or “saint wood” and used for centuries by indigenous peoples for its healing powers and medicinal properties.  A sacred oil traditionally used for ritual ceremonies to purify, cleanse and balance the spirit, as well as for clearing negative energies from living spaces. A special oil for meditation and relaxation.  Also used for repelling mosquitos.  It is steam distilled from the heart wood from fallen trees only.  Palo santo is regulated by their government to protect and maintain its precious resource.  It is from the same family as frankincense and myrrh.  To keep things relaxed during this busy time of year, I’ve been diffusing this oil with lemon and fir.

The essential oil is a golden yellow and the scent has a subtle citrusy lemon topnote with intense resinous woody notes.  The essential oil contains mainly limonene, alpha-terpineol, beta-Bisaolene, menthofuran, carvone, germacrene D, carveol, muurolene, pulegone, among others. 


Product Application:

Essential oils should never be applied directly on the skin without diluting properly, usually blending with a carrier oil.
