Sustainably Harvested Palo Santo
Our Palo Santo, (Bursera Graveolens), comes from “Proyecto de Palo Santo” a reforestation project based in the dry forests near the Ecuadorian coastal town of Puerto Lopez. Only branches that have fallen naturally are used, as a result no tree has been cut down. A percentage of each Palo Santo purchase goes directly to replanting (60,000 trees since the start of the project), as well as many worthwhile community causes.
In Spanish, Palo Santo means Holy Tree and has been used for centuries by shamans during ritual prayers, ceremonies and healing. Its metaphysical properties clean negative energies and raise vibration during meditation preparations, allowing for a deeper connection to the Source.
Just like its biological cousin Myrrh, Palo Santo is rich in brain oxygenating terpenes such as limonene and terpinol, which contributes to its invigorating and beneficial qualities.
