Palo Santo (Holy Wood) Oil

Bursera graveolens

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.

Smell’s Fantastic!

I love to smudge my treatment room with Palo Santos. This is the first essential oil of Palo Santos that I have ever had. I just put a few drops of the oil on my little ceramic diffuser and my office smells AMAZING!

Lovely scent!

This is a lovely, grounding scent that I use in an inhaler for grounding as well as in a diffuser to clear negative energy. Love it!

Palo Santo (Holy Wood)

Great for reducing pain, inflammation, and stress. Making an inhaler for stress for a friend, or making a balm for pain and inflammation in helping others to cope.
