Palo Santo is ecologically harvested & artisan distilled from wild harvested Palo Santo Wood. In Spanish, Palo Santo means "Holy Wood" or "Sacred Wood".
Steamed distilled from the aged heartwood, the essential oil is a golden yellow, with a very fresh and intense citrus aroma. The top note of lemon is subtle with resinous wood notes and a lightly medicinal pungency, which gives this essential oil an otherworldly complexity.
A distant relative of Frankincense, Palo Santo is used by Shamans in South America and traditionally used to purify and cleanse the spirit from negative energies. Spiritually can be beneficial for meditation.
Traditionally this wood was used as incense for repelling mosquitoes.
