Warm, woody, smoky, and sweet, palo santo essential oil is traditionally used in rituals, and to purify sacred spaces. Its name means “holy wood.” Palo santo brings security and serenity, as well as sense of being connected to the earth. It’s perfect for meditation, or for soothing the spirit through stressful days. Our wildcrafted palo santo essential oil is steam distilled from branches and trunks that naturally fall from wild trees in the mountains of Ecuador. Every piece of the harvested wood is used for either distillation, or as incense.
Suggested Uses

Relax - Stress

The practice of deep breathing can help the body release stress. Make a palo santo inhaler to use on busy days.

Relax - Meditation

Palo santo essential oil makes any space feel sacred. Make a roll-on blend for use during yoga or meditation.

Breathe - Chest Tension

Relax tension in your chest that’s blocking comfortable breathing—massage your chest with a blend of palo santo in jojoba.

A Passion for Aromatherapy

Aromatics International would not be what it is today without your shared belief in what we do, what we stand for, and how we conduct our aromatherapy practice.

I embarked on my journey to source pesticide-free, sustainable products from small-scale farmers and a major criteria of mine is that everything I source is both aromatically vibrant and also therapeatically effective. I love sharing what I find in this world with others. I am constantly blown away by the positive response I receive from all of you. I thank all of you for your strong support throughout the years and am continually inspired by the warm words you share with me. It truly keeps me going.

Love, Karen
