To harvest the oil, only dead trees that have been left lying on the ground for a minimum of two years can be used. The resin is driven into the heartwood when the wood dies and matures, developing its unique and powerful chemistry.


The Palo Santo or "sacred wood" tree from which the oil derives has an ancient ethnobotanical history and has long been worshiped by indigenous cultures for its purifying powers. Today, the oil is also recognized for its constellation of therapeutic properties, which include its ability to uplift the mood, strengthen vitality and aid in protection.

Redolent of citrus and balsam, Palo Santo, like its cousin Frankincense, belongs to the category of "spiritual oils," renowned for their esoteric and numinous character. This distillation is highly therapeutic and intriguingly complex.
