Palo Santo essential oil is known as a “holy wood” or “sacred wood”, and its history is ancient, traceable back to the time of the Incan Empire. Palo Santo comes from the tropical dry forests of Ecuador, Mexico and the Yucatán Peninsula in Peru. It was used by medicine men to purify and clear negative energy, treat pain and even help calm bronchial conditions.
Palo Santo trees are now grown and collected specifically to be bottled into an amazing essential oil.
