The Organic Palo Santo we are offering is from a small boutique distillery in the USA that is a certified organic distiller. Although the wood is wildcrafted from organically grown trees, the wildcrafters in Ecuador, where the wood is sourced from, cannot afford the organic certification. This is why we are referring to this oil as a non-certified Organic Oil.

Palo Santo, also known as "Holy Wood" is a tree that inhabits the coast of Ecuador and has been used for meditation and holistic healing for centuries by the indigenous tribes. The harvesting of Palo Santo is sustainably gathered from fallen trees on the tropical forest floor. Live trees are forbidden to be cut by the government, ensuring the long-term survival of the species. Once the wood is gathered it is steam-distilled by artesian distillers who value the purity and quality of their oils.
Rich in Limonene, it is particularly useful against colds and flu, sinus infection, skin infections, and muscle pain and spasms. Other health benefits of Palo Santo include relief from panic attacks and anxiety, and as a remedy for asthma. Also effective for headaches and migraines, especially in combination with frankincense. Excellent for alleviating pain from tight muscles and restricted joints. The aroma elicits peacefulness and calm, and supports meditation and deeper concentration.
