Bursera graveolens - Ecuador
Palo Santo translates from Spanish as "sacred wood.” Palo Santo oil comes from the coastal Palo Santo tree Bursera graveolens in Ecuador where this sacred tree has been used for many centuries due to its healing properties and potential to ward off negative energy. The tree belongs to the same family (Burseraceae) as frankincense and myrrh. Our Palo Santo oil is distilled from the aged heartwood taken from fallen trees, that is rich in terpenes such as limonene and alpha-terpineol. This potent magical oil has a unique clean, balsamic, woody and slightly fresh citrusy aroma.
Quick fact: The Ancient Incas applied it as a remedy for spiritual cleansing and purifying, with their Shamans using it in ceremonies to dispel bad spirits, clear bad energy and to cure various diseases.
