Palo Santo

Palo Santo


The Palo Santo tree, or Bursera Graveolens, grows in the dry forests of the South American coasts.

Once the tree has fallen, its wood matures over time and develops a special chemical reaction that later produces an aromatic essential oil. This essential oil is distilled from the bark of the naturally fallen tree.

Palo Santo is considered sacred by the Andean people and has been used since ages as a spiritual remedy to purify and clean in healing rituals.

Its essential oil has a wood-based scent with floral notes.
