About Palo Santo
Palo Santo wood (Bursera Graveolens) comes from a tree Indigenous to South America and is very popular in the countries of Ecuador and Peru. The tree’s natural range extends from the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico all the way south to Peru. Palo Santo’s range passes through the dry tropical forests of Ecuador, in the coastal hills above the Pacific Ocean. The wood is traditionally used as an incense in ceremonies and rituals as well as for keeping away mosquitos or “negative” energy. The smoke has a very pleasant aroma of citrus, mint and pine.
The wood is very resinous and produces a vibrant essential oil through vapor distillation. All Sacred Wood Essence Palo Santo is naturally cured on the forest floor from 4 up to 10 years and is ethically harvested, offering sustainably high quality Palo Santo products.

At Sacred Wood Essence they practice deep respect for Palo Santo (Bursera Graveolens). This “Holy Wood” from South America has the power to purify living spaces, soothe frayed nerves, and delight the senses. It also brings livelihood to our partner communities who gather and steward it in their homelands.
When a Palo Santo tree falls in the Ecuadorian forest, they plant more! Since their inception in 2008, Sacred Wood Essence has worked with their partner communities to plant tens of thousands Palo Santo trees, ensuring abundance for generations to come.
Their partner communities never cut down Palo Santo trees. In fact, it is illegal to do so under Ecuador’s strict conservation laws. After strong annual storms knock Palo Santo trees down, the fallen wood must remain on the forest floor for up to a decade to allow the aromatic resins to develop and cure.
Gathering Palo Santo has brought livelihood to many families in the Ecuadorian coastal forests. They believe that when communities earn just livelihood in harmony with nature, everyone benefits. They take their role as facilitators of this interwoven relationship seriously at Sacred Wood Essence.
Palo Santo touches their lives every day, not only through the healing power of its aroma, but also through the good works they are able to perform in its service. They are blessed to have received inspiration to work with this magical tree.

Burning Palo Santo
Use a candle, match or lighter to ignite your stick of Palo Santo. Hold at about a 45 degree angle pointing the tip down toward the flame. Allow it to burn for about 30 secs to 1 minute and then blow out. Move about your workspace, home, car, bathroom or anywhere you would like to clear the energy. The rich smell will also bring peace and clarity to the moment along with good feelings . When finished, place the stick in a fire proof bowl of metal, glass or clay. The glow will end on its own unless you blow on the ember which will keep the smoke going. Always use caution and respect when working with fire.
