Palo Santo

The sacred wood



The wood of the Bursera graveolens is called "Palo Santo" (holy wood) in Spanish. The tree originally comes from Central and South America, where it has been used by the indigenous peoples for thousands of years, primarily as incense for spiritual rituals to drive negativity out of people or spaces. Harvesting the Palo Santo is strictly regulated as the tree is a protected tree in many countries. Only dead wood may be used for smoking logs and extracting the essential oil.


mode of action

Our Palo Santo essential oil has a unique woody, fruity, balsamic-sweet, penetrating aroma with notes of citrus, mint and soft spices reminiscent of incense. It comes from the same botanical family as frankincense and myrrh and is often used to induce meditative states in much the same way as its botanical cousins—it promotes relaxation, calms nerves, and drives away mental chatter.







A notice:
Please never use essential oils pure, but only mix a few drops of them into a fatty oil so that the recommended number of drops is not exceeded. Other possible uses of an essential oil are, of course, fragrance lamps, nebulizers, diffusers or simply a handkerchief as a carrier material for room scenting, so that the oil can be absorbed through your respiratory tract. Essential oils are the potent essence of a plant, so always be aware of their potency. Essential oils are not suitable for children under 3 years of age.
